The West end is perfect for exploring some of the best bars and restaurants Glasgow has to offer. Lovely vibe in the West End and the sub makes getting into the city for bigger shops so easy. A great place to stay.

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
