Glasgow, a city so good they named it once.
Well, what did you expect, if there is anything us Glaswegians like it’s trying to be funny and running ourselves down. Well it is time this stops…which is just well because we’re not that funny to be honest. However, we’re not in the business of running Glasgow down either, it may be far from perfect but there is a lot of good to enjoy in the city and that’s what we’re here to do. If you want to Get Around Glasgow and see just what the city has to offer, we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction.
