As the Commonwealth Games hit Glasgow and the world’s focus turns to the lively Scottish city, we take a look at the best ways to waste a day there. Glasgow is a city full of surprises – it’s cosmopolitan, stylish, quirky, but still holds onto it’s Scottish heritage and strong tradition of art.

If you’ve only got 24 hours to spend in Glasgow, here’s how to eat, drink and admire your way around the city.

Drink Scotch whiskey at The Pot Still

This traditional Glaswegian boozer has two main things going for it: it’s got bags of personality and a ridiculously large array of Scotch whiskey behind the bar. Combine the two and you’ve got a recipe for a top night out in Glasgow. [The Pot Still]

Indulge in high class Scottish cuisine at Cail Bruich

Newcastle Geordie Sports Stag Do 4 - Food and Drink

Scottish food isn’t all haggis and Irn Bru. The very suggestion would be insulting to the staff at Cail Bruich, a top end restaurant dedicated to serving incredible cuisine sourced from the abundant Scottish countryside. Expect experimental flavours and a very satisfied stomach. [Cail Bruich]

Discover the life and works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh at The Mackintosh House

 

The Mackintosh House is a reconstruction of the home of the iconic Scottish artist, designer and architect at the Hunterian Art Gallery. The gallery houses an impressive collection of the artist’s work and is well worth a visit if you’re on the Glasgow culture trail.

See a play in a pub/church at the Oran Mor in Glasgow’s West End

The Oran Mor is a former church which has been transformed into a brilliant venue in Glasgow’s West End. The venue is home to several bars, a nightclub and auditorium, and hosts an ingenius lunchtime heater experience: ‘A Play, A Pie and a Pint.’

Take a bracing walk along Glasgow Riverside

 

The Glasgow Riverside area where the River Clyde meets the Kelvin is home to The Glasgow Riverside Museum where visitors can walk down a street from 1900, and a 19th Century sailing ship, the Glenlee as well as the opportunity to see dramatic views of the two rivers. Just take a jacket against the wind.

Take part in Glasgow’s creative scene at the Centre for Contemporary Arts, or just have a glass of wine at their Terrace Bar

 

The Glasgow Centre for Contemporary Arts is a thriving example of Glasgow’s arts scene, with a line up of art exhibitions, theatre, festivals, performance poetry and music as well as a cracking  café and bar full of the city’s bright young things.
