I'll be in Glasgow for one full and two half days this July. I'll arrive there around 5 pm and wonder what to do on my first evening (and perhaps the second, too). All museums seem to close early. I'm interested in lush gardens with water, large cathedrals, modern art, classical music, theatre and special places with a little weird atmosphere (this is a little bit difficult to define). I'm not interested in shopping, eating, pubs, discos or anything too expensive.
I'm staying near botanic gardens (plan to visit the next morning) so it would be great to find something nearby. Any thoughts?
