Stunning historic building in the heart of the west end. The view at the back of the Gilbert Scott building over the city is a must!

University from XV century, very impressive. You can visit museum and look around in this huge complex of buildings. Dream, that if I was younger, would have liked to take some courses here.

Great venue and the balcony is an added bonus. Can’t wait to go back. I think it’s getting some unexpected business due to the fire at the ABC.

There is metered parking around the Uni, it is a residential area so mostly parking permits.

They DO sell food to Joe public, in a place near the Hunterian Art gallery (it's signposted) but it is very expensive and not very good. Better to go to one of the many places on Byres Road.
