See/do as much as possible! If...
See/do as much as possible! If you want to go shopping, then the city centre is obviously a great place to go, but also go to Byres Road (get the underground to Hillhead, or lots of buses go there - the 44 definitely does, I'm not sure about the numbers ot the other routes) for more unusual shops - DeCourcey's Arcade (in DeCourcey's Lane) has some nice specialist shops and cafes. Also, go to Ashton Lane for a good selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants. Basically the variety of shops, cafes, pubs, clubs, etc. Standing out in Aston lane with a glass of wine just seems so continental.... :-)
In town, you should go to Princes Square. Although most of the shops are VERY expensive, you can get reasonably priced food there. However it can get very busy around lunch time. Try to get a seat by the balcony - although this is the smoking section, you get a good view of the rest of the centre, and if there are musicians playing, you can see them as well as hear them!
Old firm games
As I already mentioned in my main page, Glasgow is a city which is divided from a religious point of view between catholics and protestants and nowhere else is this more visible than in football. A game between footbal clubs Rangers (protestant) and Celtic (catholic), referred to as "old firm", is an experience unrivalled to games played anywhere else. just don't get caught up in any fights afterwards.
Celtic Football Club
Historically linked to the Irish community of Scotland, Celtic is one of the most beloved/hated football clubs in Scotland. Part of the Old Firm (derby with Rangers Football Club), its history dates back to 1888 and it is one of Scotland's most successful clubs having raised the European Cup before any other club in the United Kingdom.
Tours of Celtic Park run for about two hours and are full of information that suits tourists as well as football fanatics. Entry to the tour costs £8.50 and it runs Monday to Sunday at 11:00, 12:00, 13:45 and 14:30 except on home matchdays.
Barbecue by the Loch
Stopping by at one of the lochs on the way up to Lochness... I think this was Loch Locky. We made time for a barbecue- one of those ready-made, easy to use barbecue packs that you can buy off the shelf in some stores. What a wonderful idea!:)
From door to door to door....
At day you've probably been shopping along Sauchiehall Street. Well, where the shops seemed to stop, that's where the nightlife part begins.
From Charing Cross all the way down to the pedestrian part the clubs and pubs lay door to door. Just start in either end and work yourself to the other.
Be aware that most clubs charge an entrance fee, so you probably won't do many clubs in a night... My tip is to stay at a pub until 11 pm (when they close, imagine that...) and then check out a place which suits your age, class and taste in music (you'll hear rythms out on the street).
Oh, and don't forget the mandatory stop at either of the fast food stops after closing time, it's kind of part of the deal. Some places are really posh, some are very student-ish, dress as you seem fit for your purpose.
