We walked around here one morning and were fascinated by the basement cafes and bars, the laneways, the sense of vibrant community. Not easy walking because of the hills and uneven footpaths. Probably at its best in the Evenings, but visit if you can

Some great places to eat as well as visit. Byrnes Rd. and Ashton lane are favourites for eating. Art Gallery and Kelvin Park worth a visit. 15 minutes mute walk across the river to the Transport Museum.

A better part of the city with pubs, shops, hotels, museums including Kelvingrove. More importantly another area to look for quirky or interesting buildings.

Some of the best restaurants and bars in the city are in the West End and it is usually quite busy and full of life

The Oran Mor at the top of Byres Road is probably your best bet.
