A sharp contrast to Edinburgh, Scotland's second City offers the rugby tourist something very different
Once an industrial and dingy city, Glasgow is edgy, modern and downright ballsy. Its old architectural legacy is now swamped with cutting-edge style bars, world-class music venues, and a hedonistic club culture that will bring out your nocturnal instincts. ‘Glesga’ is a total contrast to Edinburgh.
Traditionally, Glasgow is not a Rugby hot-bed in Scotland. The game was more at home in Edinburgh & the Borders before the sport went professional in 1995. Since then, the demand for a legitimate pro-franchise has resulted in Glasgow being the best home away from Edinburgh. It is the Glasgow franchise who hold the initiative right now. Regularly featuring in the postseason play-offs and providing the backbone for the National Team. That said, this success has fed down the pyramid & the sport of Rugby is in good health in the West.
