Holidays and Self Catering Accommodation in Glasgow

Glasgow is Scotland’s biggest city. Although Glasgow has some interesting architecture, unlike Edinburgh, it is not known for being particularly picturesque and has no castle to recommend it. However, what Glasgow lacks in outward appearance, it certainly makes up for in spirit and culture and Glasgow has some notable architectural gems such as buildings by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
