As the largest city in Scotland, Glasgow sits on the banks of the River Clyde and is full of beautiful and peaceful parks. The city’s progressive art and music scene alongside its heritage and history have allowed Glasgow to grow into a vibrant place in recent years. This city has excellent public transport, meaning having a car here is by no means essential, offering a subway, trains, buses and bicycles for hire in 40 locations. As for travelling outside the city, trains to Edinburgh take under an hour, and flights to London an hour and a half.
