Overview Of The Port Of Glasgow

About Glasgow
Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and third largest in the United Kingdom. The city is situated on the River Clyde in the country's West Central Lowlands.

In Greenock, Lyle Hill offers fantastic views over the whole Forth of Clyde, the Holy Loch and the Highlands.

Greenock's attractive esplanade provides a gentle riverside walk just over a mile long extending to the west from Ocean Terminal to the Royal West of Scotland Amateur Boat Club.

Newark Castle was built in the 15th century and has stunning views of the Firth of Clyde.

The McLean Museum and Art Gallery features local history displays and fine art collections.

Oak Mall indoor shopping centre now forms the central feature of the town, the surrounding streets feature a host of smaller shops.

Further afield in Glasgow, attractions include the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and Pollock Country Park set in over 360 acres, with scenic running and walking trails.

Designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the Glasgow School of Art showcases Mackintosh's contribution to the Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements.

Glasgow's vibrant West End has many unusual shops, bars and restaurants.

Buchanan Street is one of the main shopping areas, with a more upmarket range of shops.

Tours of Ibrox Stadium, home to Rangers Football Club are available.

The Botanic Gardens, located at the top of Byres Road, is very popular with locals as well as visitors. The Kibble Palace is a massive greenhouse which houses much of the park's botanic collection.

The Necropolis - Glasgow's Victorian City of the Dead, is a large and grand cemetery modelled on Père-Lachaise in Paris. Heritage Trail maps are available pointing the way to memorials and tombs of some of Glasgow's most famous citizens.

Traditional Scottish dishes include 'neeps and tatties' (swede & potato), 'stovies' (meat and potato stew), scotch pie and haggis.
