Personal Safety, Glasgow
Downtown Glasgow at night can be a bit unnerving (especially if you are a female travelling alone), unless you are a seasoned traveller and/or travelling in a group. I would avoid using the tube or the underground trains after about 8 pm unless you are very confident that you can handle being approached and solicited for money. It is not uncommon to find used syringes in washrooms or less frequented alleyways, so be cautious of this. I would not say however, that this is any different than any other major suburban centre
Neds (non-educated deliquents) are one of the worst things about Glasgow and they are everywhere! They are teenagers who hang about the streets being a nuisance. They wear sports gear, smoke, drink, and try to make everyone elses lives a misery.
As with all big city´s Glasgow has a red light district. It is not anywhere on a par with other European city's but is run down and seedy nonetheless. The place to avoid is located near the Anderson Bus Station or indeed maybe this is what you are after! :)
THERE ARE NO KNOWN DANGERS TO TOURISTS IN GLASGOW EXCEPT THAT OF ANY BIG CITY BE CAREFUL WITH SUITCASES MONEY ETC AS WITH ANY POPULATION CENTRE THERE IS ALWAYS SOME BODY WHO WILL TRY AND TAKE ADVANTAGE
Like most major cities, pickpockets are quite common in the main shopping areas. Be sure not to let anyone too close to your bags and be aware of who is around you when you stop to look at something or take a photo.
Not really any problems with Glasgow except the obvious like 'Don't go wandering around on your own at night'
Try not to walk alone at night, specially at suburb areas..Just for precaution, as when travelling one is not so aware of what happens at night or how dangerous a nice place can turn up to be...
