Merchant City has a fine selection of buildings from when Glasgow was a glorious city (not anymore) . Its a small but very central part of Glasgow and if ypu are in a city you will cross it anyway. Look up to really appreciate the built quality.

You must visit this interest 'corner' of Glasgow whilst you are in the city. It has some of the finest building in the area. It was recommended to us by a guide on a tour we did earlier in the day and we were so pleased that we passed this way on the way back to our hotel. Some of the building are really interesting with lots of history.
