Dwarfing the (admittedly impressive) capital of Edinburgh in population and popularity, Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city–and indeed, holds its own against much of Europe with a ranking as a Gamma-class Global City. Having grown from a tiny riverside settlement to a powerful seaport and financial center, and bolstered by a centuries-old legacy of education and innovation, the modern city has developed a powerful high-tech economy while retaining the artistic and musical spirit and novelty for which it has become so well known. Glasgow draws in jobseekers and tourists alike, and will continue to do so for many years to come.

Location: The Valley of the River Clyde

A busy seaport on the Firth of Clyde, Glasgow is a transportation hub for the rest of Scotland. Road, rail, sea, and air routes all pass through this metropolis in the West Central Lowlands, connecting directly by land to major cities like London and by the skies to destinations all over the planet. For a unique travel experience, consider arriving by seaplane–the Glasgow Seaplane Terminal opened in August of 2007.

Business: Artisan Productions and Modern Innovation

Once a small, rural community, Glasgow rose first to become one of Britain’s largest seaports, then a center of education and innovation, then a manufacturing and trade powerhouse. Today, the city has Scotland’s largest economy and is a part of “Silicon Glen,” with major industries including shipbuilding, heavy engineering, financial services, brewing/distilling, software, and biotechnology.

Culture: A Global City and Pride of Scotland

A center of the 18th-century Scottish Enlightenment, Glasgow offers modern visitors a rich cultural experience. A collection of fine universities, established theaters and concert halls, and both Victorian and Edwardian architectural masterpieces are on display for discerning eyes, while pubs, clubs, and museums offer a more interactive experience. Marvel upwards at the magnificent Glasgow Cathedral, and don’t miss a visit to the Kelvingrove Gallery & Museum.

Activities: Experience Celtic-Inspired Song and Scenery

Glasgow’s music scene is world-renowned, and on any given day, there are numerous live shows to pick from in any type of venue–from loud clubs to charming pubs to the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Sightseers will enjoy walking tours through the city center, or striking out on their own–we particularly recommend the Victorian architecture, boutiques, and galleries of the Merchant City district. Don’t miss a visit to (and tasting from) one or more of the city’s many distilleries.
