Glasgow, Scotland Travel Diary

Hiiii everyone! I’m back with my travel posts around Europe! I recently did a travel diary for both Gold Coast in QLD and Sydney in NSW (part 1 & part 2) but today thought I’d continue along with my travels from when I studied abroad in Oxford. So, next on the travel list is – Glasgow, Scotland!

On our Scotland trip, we went to both Glasgow and Edinburgh. We got into Glasglow quite late and had until 6pm the next day to explore. We didn’t do so well with the exploring as we got lost, haha, but scroll down for the story! Sooo here are some pics from beautiful Glasgow and a few things we ended up doing here!

University of Glasgow definitely reminds me of Hogwarts. The building and its surrounds are just SOOOO pretty! I think seeing the university was one of the highlights for me on this trip.

The Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery is part of University of Glasgow and the architecture and the setting is just amazing in here.

We landed into Glasgow at 10pm and was bound to leave at 6pm the next day. So, the day we landed, we checked into our hotel and had a good sleep. We then set off bright and early the next morning and had about 9 hours to explore Glasgow. I must admit, we didn’t do too well in the exploring bit as we got lost quite a few times. Our plan was to get tickets to the City Sight Seeing Bus (the big red ones) but we couldn’t find the bus stop so we ended up walking around. But then, we stumbled upon a bus stop where the city sightseeing bus stopped at so, we decided to hop onto the next bus.

The bus itself was a fab idea. The City Sightseeing Bus loops around city of Glasgow in about 1.5 hours. This loop covers all the attractions I’ve listed below and much much more. It’s a great way to see the city in such a short period of time while also being able to get off at different stops to see the attractions you’re most interested in. So, below I’ve listed three of the attractions which were my favourite on this loop!

1. University of Glasgow

2. Riverside Museum

3. Scottish Exhibition and Museum Center
