Sauchiehall street is one of the most famous streets in Scotland so it is very sad to see it's current state. It seems very dark with virtually no Christmas lighting and is generally scruffy and uninviting. Sorry to say that Buchanan Street and Argyll Street...More

This is the place for shops, bars, clubs and restaurants. It was lively when we visited as it was Christmas. Had a nice walk in the evening, but I did notice a few shops were empty.
