Glasgow might not be as famous as a tourist city as Edinburgh, but the largest city in Scotland has a lot to offer. George Square is an obvious meeting point and nearby you can find one of the weirdest sights in Western Europe. The Statue of the Duke of Wellington would have been like any other statue if it were not for the traffic cone that is permanently placed upon his head. Glasgow is home to several shopping streets and gallerias. If you want to shop in Scotland, this is where you should go!
