Glasgow

 

Some would say the 'real' city in Scotland is Glasgow. Like other one-time British Industrial Heavyweights, Glasgow is almost unrecognisable from the past. Style, Culture & World-Class Rugby to boost, the city is fast becoming one of our favourites.

Introducing: Glasgow

During the past few decades Glasgow, the UK's fourth largest city, has re-invented itself from a rather economically depressed post-war industrial centre to a modern metropolis with a thriving art and culture scene.

Glasgow takes its sport very seriously. The famous footballing icons of Celtic and Rangers dominate the local back pages. However, the city also bears a proud Rugby heritage. The Glasgow Warriors have been champions in the past of the Guinness Pro 14 Championship and with some of Britain's finest players on show, they are always an exiting team to watch. 

Away from the Rugby Field why not look to settle a score and include an afternoon out either chasing each other through woodland Paintballing or down the slopes of an Indoor Ski Run.
