Welcome to Greater Glasgow!

The Greater Glasgow area is the largest urban area in Scotland, comprising the biggest chunk of the country's population. Set on the banks of the River Clyde, Glasgow is the industrial and financial heart of this lively domain, historically renowned for its shipbuilding prowess. The architecturally impressive city showcases modern designs side-by-side with Victorian masterpieces and bustles day and night with eclectic restaurants, traditional pubs and world-class shops. Its enviable collection of museums and galleries includes the famous Burrell Collection and Kelvingrove Museum, and the city is also home to the University of Glasgow, one of the largest tertiary institutes in the United Kingdom.

Reaching into the surrounding hills of the Clyde Valley, the suburbs and towns of Greater Glasgow enable the best of both worlds with rolling countryside and energetic urban hubs just a stone's throw away. The area is renowned for rural and riverside walks and numerous picturesque golf courses. Less than an hour from the city of Glasgow near Lanark, travellers will find the New Lanark Mill Heritage Site—a restored 18th-century cotton mill village, while one of the U.K.'s most celebrated walks—West Highland Way—starts from Milngavie just east of Glasgow. Tourists can visit Robert Burns' birthplace near Abington, or trace the remains of the Roman Antonine Wall in Bearsden.
