Things to do and see in Glasgow.
Glasgow has an enviable array of cuisine, from Indian to Italian (two long standing and successful communities) to Thai, Mongolian, Persian, Chinese, Sushi Bars, French and more gastro pubs than you can shake a stick at. It may come as a surprise, but Glasgow has been voted the Curry Capital of U.K. for about 9 years in a row. No surprise to us! In fact, curry has come very close to surpassing haggis as Scotland’s national dish.
Here are just some of our favourites.
Dining in at the Den, Argyle Street. (Indian)
The Finnieston, Argyle Street. (Fish)
The Drygate Brewery, Drygate. (Gastro pub and great real ales)
Out for a drink
West Brewery, all the ales you need.
Drygate Brewery, great of selection of Ales and you can do a tour of the brewery.
The Book Club, Vinniecombe Street. A beautifully converted art deco cinema.
Things to do
Whisky tasting and tours
The Gengoyne Distillery is approximately 20 miles from Glasgow and they have a great whisky tour and a fantastic selection of whiskies of various ages. Our favourite is the 12 year old.
The Auchentoshan distillery is also close to Glasgow and worth a visit.
The Pot Still pub in Glasgow city centre, has the biggest selection of whiskies we have ever seen and the landlord knows about most of them. Don’t plan an early start the next day.
