Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and is well served by international airports and convenient road and rail links. The city is a major tourist destination and has been described as 'the finest specimen of Victorian architecture in Europe'. Glasgow benefits from internationally acclaimed museums and galleries, outstanding shopping and superb bars and restaurants. It is also at the gateway to some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery.
