Tips and Tricks for Visiting Glasgow

Weather

Be prepared for all types of weather during your visit. Bring a set of clothing for every season, and make sure you have an umbrella for the unexpected rainstorm.

The Food

A Scottish meal is delicious and something you must experience. Everything from haggis to tatties and neeps is traditional Scottish fare that tourists must try. Also visit the local tea houses for traditional afternoon tea served in style.

Vehicles in City Centre

Glasgow promotes walking and cycling over driving. Therefore, the city centre is mostly closed off to vehicles. If you want to explore most of the city, but do not want to walk, rent a bike.

The Scottish Midge

You will notice small flying insects which are known as the Highland or Scottish Midge. They are persistent, like mosquitoes, and found in swarms and damp conditions. Buy a repellent from a local pharmacy so that they do not have the opportunity to bother you.
