Five days in Glasgow

by veigapaula

I am going to Glasgow for a conference but I have extended my stay to go sightseeing. Besides the museums, art galleries and shops I have checked already I want to know if there is any day trip available to go to Loch Ness in Winter (I am going in November...).
And any other off the beaten path info people who have been there already want to share, regarding culture and scottish customs.
Thank you.

http://www.timberbush-tours.co.uk/glasgow_tours/one_day/loch_ness.html seems to operate throughout the year.

They also offer others:

Another possibility:

Have a look at the VT Glasgow pages for off the beaten path tips etc; there will be lots of info there.

If you have five days you can see a lot, but if the five days includes your conference then what you can do depends on the time avail.
Years ago we used Scottish Highlands railpasses and did the following quicky circuit.
Day one, Glasgow to Edinburgh and a city bus tour including the castle, overnight in Sterling.
Day two, Edinburgh to Inverness and then start towards Kyle of Lochalsh stay somewhere between Inverness and Kyle or to get a jump on the next day stay in Kyle itself, (have some fish and chips).
Day three, Take the ferry from Kyle to the isle of Skye and then a bus to the South end of the island. Catch the ferry to Mallaig and then grab a train to Fort William. Stay in Fort William that night.
Day four, you can make it back to Glasgow with ease.
I know it sounds rushed but you'll see a lot and have a ball.

Bus travel in Scotland is so inexpensive if you book your ticket at least 24 hours in advance. I used the system to go from Glasgow to Aberdeen to Braemar back to Balmoral back to Aberdeen to Dundee and back to Glasgow and it cost under 30 GBP travelling over several days. You could easily reach the highlands from Glasgow by bus for the day. I haven't had the chance to travel the western highlands but my brother swears by Fort William.

Here are two helpful links to assist in your planning:

Thank you all for the info, I am sure I will have a great time there!

Oh and you can't beat a pie with beans and a pint at the Horseshoe Pub (just north of the train station) .... great lunch for the best price (and their other food is good too).

Re: Five days in Glasgow

to get a tour of the highlands in one day would be pushing it as to get from glasgow to inverness would be at least 3.5 hours, making a return trip 7 hours, before you get any sightseing done.

There are trips available that last 2/3 days, but you would need to make sure that they fit into your schedule.

Try googe-ing it or visit somewhere like visitscotland.com for a good starting point

Travel Tips for Glasgow

by billpav

Visit car park in nearby Campsie hills above Lennoxtown for stunning view of the city, followed by a tour of the various free to enter museums and art galleries throughout the city. Many great theatres and live music spots. The people are among the friendliest in the world, surprising for such a big city and Glasgows rep as a mean city is grossly exaggerated.

In general, Glasgow people are...

by StirCrazy

In general, Glasgow people are very friendly, very talkative and (if you are unaccustomed to the strong accent and pace of speech) totally incomprehensible!! So you might want to spend a few days there so you get a chance to 'learn the lingo'!!

Loch Lomond

by HispanicYob

Located not too far from Glasgow, it's worth it just for the trip here. Lots of beautiful scenery to admire. Next to Loch Ness, Loch Lomond's the other famous loch in Scotland, except this one doesn't have Nessie in it. There's a little village near the loch which is very picturesque, it's almost like out of a tale. I got to see this place very very briefly, but I'm glad I did. It's a nice place to kick back.

Cairnpapple Hill

by margaretvn

Visit Cairnpapple Hill
On a clear day you have beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The holes you can see in the photo would have had thick wooden poles in them making up part of the roofing.
It was used as a burial ground and a ceremonial site from about 3000 to 1400 BC.
It is a bit clausophobic inside - but worth going down into the ground!
This is one of the most important prehistoric monuments on mainland Scotland. Open in the summer only.
Tel: 01506 634622
Found three miles north of Bathgate, four miles from Linlithgow off the A706

The Horseshoe Bar

by JiminYork about The Horseshoe Bar

This is a taste of what drinking in Glasgow was like years ago: it was a man's job. No frills, just set them up, preferably a half and half (half of whisky, chased by a half of lager)and gulp it down. Proceed to have another ten and you'll belong to Glasgow. Anything but football colours.
