Edinburgh and Glasgow -screw bloody England cities :P

Actually this has more to do with I've only been to those two and London. Although I did drive thru Birmingham on the way to Wales (loved Wales). Love the UK countryside, I had a friend in The Cotswolds area. Otherwise I've only done the highlands of Scotland which I loved.

This thread reminds me we need to get back to the UK and checkout all the architecture in these cities. I've only lived in the USA for my whole life so no history. :lol:

Why such a high score for Glasgow? I like it but I've never found it as friendly as its reputed to be. The centre is a shithole. And it rains a lot and they're unhealthy, unsmiling pissheads.

The West End is lovely, mind.

One comp to avoid, though, is Disky's "Best of the 70's"

Normally, Disky are clever at repackaging

I'm just trying to get some opinions! It wouldn't work if I just came on to say 'ooh Glasgow's lovely isn't it?'

Mind there'll be fuck-all response anyway.

What they say: Glasgow's so friendly!

What they actually mean: drunk gobshites harass you in the street

It's not a lovely city. It can be an enjoyable one that has a lot to offer but it's not a word I would really associate with Glasgow frankly

I don't normally drop as far as this board, but I thought Glasgow was quite a nice city centre, certainly compared to Leeds or Liverpool. My recollections are largely fairly drunken, but I've been to many worse places. I only got hassled by someone trying to sell me a huge roll of condoms, and a desk light. I didn't need either at the time.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

I just don't know any more.

I think I'll feel rootless for the rest of my life :(

I dunno man, but I thought you were keen on Glasgow? And it's not like you haven't been before.

If you're not feeling it then you're not feeling it, you know but there's a lot to recommend that place and it's cheap too.

The people aren't miserable either although it is pretty wet.
