Got to say though, if you’re based in Glasgow (or anywhere in the vicinity), we’re well jel. Scotland’s biggest city is packed with culture, fiercely proud, and famously friendly. And its ‘gallus’ (cocky) locals top it off with their wit, warmth and cheeky sense of humour. Home of famous football clubs Rangers and Celtic (whose ‘Old Firm’ derby is global football’s most passionate), world-class architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, feminist icon Isabella Elder, political firebrand Margo MacDonald and national treasure Sir Billy Connolly, it’s a hotbed of spirited creativity.

So what’s good to do in this cool city? You can escape the cold and take in some inspirational plants in Glasgow Botanic Gardens – a truly gorgeous green space. Snap a selfie by the River Clyde with the backdrop of the famous Finnieston Crane. Learn all about beer making (and beer drinking) at Drygate Brewery.
