The biggest city in Scotland, Glasgow has earned itself a reputation as a party town, and one with some very friendly and outspoken locals – assuming you can understand what they’re saying. But it’s also the gateway to Britain’s most captivating scenery, and some of the last true wildernesses left in Europe.
