Glasgow (Greenock), Scotland

Quick Scotland lesson: the country is divided into the Lowlands and Highlands, and while it sounds like a matter of elevation… they basically just mean the north part and the south! Glasgow could be thoughts of the capital of the Lowlands region, plus it’s the third most populated city in all of the U.K. It’s one of the top spots to survey Victorian-era architecture — castles and cathedrals abound — with a few choice selections even surviving from the medieval period. Glasgow is a museum lover’s dream, boasting countless collections dedicated to beautiful art… and even other interesting pursuits like the Glasgow Museum of Transport.

  • Walk Glasgow’s oldest house and gardens, Provand's Lordship, dating back to the 1400s.
  • See dinosaurs, suits of armor — oh, and art — at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
  • Unlock great views of some of Scotland’s incredible lochs: Loch Lomond, Loch Eck and Holy Loch.
