Miller Street is positioned between the pedestrianised shopping thoroughfare of Argyle Street and Ingram Street, where you’ll find many of the city’s high end boutiques. Buchanan Street, the centre of Glasgow’s ‘style mile’ is less than 5 minutes’ walk away and the city’s main covered shopping areas of Princes Square, St. Enoch Centre and Buchanan Galleries are all within easy reach.
“Boasting the UK’s largest retail phalanx outside London, Glasgow is a shopaholic’s paradise. The ‘Style Mile’ around Buchanan St, Argyle St and Merchant City is a fashion hub, while the West End has quirkier, more bohemian shopping options.“
