We had 2 nights in Glasgow this past Sept and loved the city. We stayed at the Alfred Hotel in the Hillhead Area just off the Great Western Way. It is very near Glasgow University and walkable to the Kelvingrove Museum.
Our flight arrived early in the morning and we were able to drop our bags at the hotel and went off sightseeing. We bought a 2 day hop on hop off pass and used that to get around the city.
In addition to the Kelvingrove, we loved the Riverside Museum which specializes in all things transportation. If you go don't miss the tall ship Glenlea.
We had an enjoyable lunch at the Piper Pub off George Square where I had my first Cullen Skink.
The Cathedral area was enjoyable especially Glasgow's oldest house.
Also you can reserve a tour of the City Chambers to see great woodwork and the magnificent marble staircase.
We had dinner and drinks at Oran Mor on Great Western Way. It is a casual pub/restaurant in a former church. The area around our hotel is very close to lots of restaurants in Ashton Lane and Byers Road areas.
We were very impressed with Glasgow.
