Glasgow is Scotland’s biggest city and is seen as representative of Scottish culture. From a run-down post-industrial city it’s now emerged from the ashes to be a sparkling city of culture. It’s spread over a huge area and unless you want to rely on public transport you’ll find Glasgow car hire is the best way to get around. We can arrange it for you, saving you time and money through our online booking system which finds the lowest prices on the biggest range of hire cars in Glasgow.

Glasgow Airport Mini Guide

Getting to Glasgow
Again, with no direct flights from South Africa, a connection will be needed. The most direct ones are via Amsterdam and Heathrow. Other options include the hour’s drive along the motorway from Edinburgh Airport.

Travelling Outside the City
Although a big and sprawling city, it doesn’t take long to get out of the city into a rural idyll. The most popular excursion is to Loch Lomond, northwest of the city along the A82. Alternatively, take the M77 southwest to Ayr, the home of Scotland’s most famous son; Rabbie Burns.

Places to Stay
Hotels in Glasgow are great value and none more than the boutique Devoncove Hotel at only £35 a night. It’s on Sauchiehall Street, one of the main shopping areas of the city. More upmarket but still only £63 a night is the four star Menzies Hotel, close to the station.

Must See Places in Glasgow
  • Glasgow Cathedral. This is a stunning example of medieval architecture and looks very imposing. With parts dating back to the 4th century, it’s one of the city’s oldest buildings.
  • George Square and the City Chambers. In the centre of the city, the chambers look down onto a huge square with statues of the city’s famous residents. You can take a free tour of the building, seeing its Victorian opulence and the amazing banquet room.
  • Bridges Over the Clyde. There are three of note; the Tradeston Pedestrian Bridge, locally known as the ‘squiggly bridge’ on account of its path; the Kingston Bridge which you should walk under and the Clyde Arc, another modern masterpiece.
  • Glasgow Science Centre. A huge complex, housing thousands of scientific exhibits, many of them hands on and suitable for children.
