In his books Rick has written "Avoid the area near the River Clyde entirely (hookers and thugs)...."
Anyone know specifically the area he is referring to? Knowing the street boundaries would be nice since his warning is kind of vague.
Better - has anyone spent time in Glasgow in the last year or two and can confirm or refute the safety warning? I seem to remember seeing photos of a pub along the river in someone's trip report that looked like a nice place to hang out.
