Looking for more places to visit in Glasgow.....our blogs will guide you around more of the city......
Allow me to introduce myself; I’m the Kilted Haggis, know as Kilty to my friends and I’m passionate about Glasgow. According to many travel publications, my home city is a top destination. Furthermore, in a Rough Guide poll, it has also held the title of “the friendliest city in the world”. Biased I may be, but there are many reasons to visit this great city, from culture and history, to music and shopping. The aim of these blogs is to try and guide you through some less mainstream places to visit in Glasgow. I aim to build on the work of your Kilted Haggis guides and help you discover the true spirit of Glasgow.
And here is my chat....

Hidden Gems of Glasgow – Cafes One of the many things I’ll say about Glaswegians is that we do not like to be behind the times – we’re more of the trend-setting sort. Our glorious city has fully engaged with the exceptional rise in café culture in recent years. Although the big-name high street chains […]
Hidden Gems of Glasgow – Ashton Lane One of my favourite places, Ashton Lane is situated just off one of the main streets in Glasgow’s West End – Byres Road. It’s a charming lane with a cobbled street, with a fantastic range of pubs and restaurants, plus a retro independent cinema – The Grosvenor which […]
Hidden Gems of Glasgow – Britannia Panopticon Music Hall Who knew that the world’s oldest surviving music hall could be found in central Glasgow? Despite being really old (1857) this hidden gem isn’t hugely well known locally, but following various renovation projects, wee Kilty here reckons it’s an up and coming venue. Although some may […]
