Flying visit to Glasgow so had to walk Buchanan and Argyle St.Some great designer shops in this pedestrian area which is great to browse without worrying about traffic. Some impressive buildings and , although no real skyscrapers, did have that major city feel about it with its long straight streets set in a grid system. Would like to have done... More

A visit to Buchanan Street if in Glasgow is a must. It's is a busy place with plenty to see and enjoy the atmosphere of a great city. There is a wealth of fantastic architecture including buildings that have been beautifully maintained and converted to modern use.

Best street in city centre for shopping. All the usual high street shops with Princes Square and Frasers being particular favourites of mine. Bang on city centre with plenty of restaurants around. Take a stroll through the Argyle arcade where there are numerous top jewellers, and enjoy the window shopping, if you are not actually buying. Only negative point in... More
