    Glasgow – a Scottish metropolis

    Dwarfing even Edinburgh, with its population of 600,000 Glaswegians, this is the largest city in Scotland. It seems like it, too. Buzzing bars and an experimental restaurant scene fizzes with life from the watersides of the River Clyde to the Victorian-built downtown. There are art collections and institutions – the menageries of the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the otherworldly Science Centre – to suit all sorts of thinkers. There are pretty parks where picnickers gather in the summer and hearty Scottish pubs that slosh with whisky in the winter. Glasgow holiday rentals are your ticket to all that and more.

    The Glasgow arts

    Art lovers of all sorts will feel right at home in Glasgow. Whether it's a night in the packed stand-up rooms of Jongleurs or a bebop quartet courtesy of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, a rockabilly rumble in the underground bars of Sauchiehall Street or an acclaimed tribute act in the King's Theatre, there's loads on the calendar. And that's not even mentioning the festivals that erupt here. Take your pick from the Glasgow International Jazz Festival, the foodie-arty mashups of the Merchant City Festival, or the Glasgow Comedy Festival.

    Glasgow's got a story to tell

    Scotland's 2nd city has one truly enthralling range of museums and exhibition centres. The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is simply not to be missed. You'll be greeted with mummified heads and Egyptian trinkets, with Vincent van Gogh paintings and dinosaur bones – it's everything from an art gallery to a natural history show. The cutting-edge Glasgow Science Centre is also right up there. The kids always fall for its IMAX shows and electron experiments, its planetarium lights and biological body walkthroughs.

    Glasgow holiday rentals beckon all year round

    This northern city might get chilly in the winter, but don't worry, there are oodles of cosy Glasgow holiday rentals to keep you feeling warm, even when the snows of December, January and February line the Clyde. Spring starts in April and May, and can have some milder readings on the thermometer. Summer is the hottest time of year, with the most sun and occasional highs in the 20s – perfect for wandering the Victorian blocks and enjoying the leafy parks. Autumn, from September to October, gets progressively chillier, but that means fewer visitors are vying to get in to the attractions.

    Glasgow looks to the Highlands

    Glasgow might officially be a city of the Scottish Lowlands, but outdoorsy travellers will surely be tantalised by just how close they come to the fabled Scottish Highlands. Just 30 minutes in the car will bring you to the waters and peaks of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, a place where 3,000-foot-high mountains like Ben Lomond and Beinn Challuim loom over barren valleys of heath and moor. Paths, like the 96-mile-long West Highland Way, pass through there, and the snow-gathering summits of the Arrochar Alps provide the backdrop.
