Hey. Glasgow is a pretty cool place and you shouldn't be stuck for things to do....if you like pubs. Glasgow has a great pub culture along with some quality arts attractions and state of the art science centre. Do a google search for 'Charles Rennie McKintosh' It should bring up all architectural sites within the city (there's about 5). Try the Burrel Collection near Pollock or Glasgow Science centre, which has an amazing planetarium and always runs some sort of themed exhibition. Check out the West End up near Glasgow University for live music, old streets and good food/drink. Its not really the weather round this time of year but the botanic gardens might be worth a visit and Loch Lomond is a hlf hr train ride away.If you like gigs, do a search for any in the vicinity. The Barrowlands (Barras) is your top spot but King Tut's Wah Wah Hut is also class...

See these sites for more info:

With respects to gigs, one local band I like that's playing next Friday is Mouse Eat Mouse at Nice N Sleazy, if I were in Glasgow right now I'd be there!

check out this link here to get an idea of the tourist side of things. would recommend a magazine called The List get an idea of what cultural events are going on when you'll be there as well having information about the best nightlife

Enjoy it. Nowhere on earth I'd rather live.
