Glasgow is the cultural capital of Scotland and it is the most populous city in the country with it residents account for 1/5 of Scotland total population. The size of the city means there was a need for efficient public transport to allow residents and tourists to get around easily and this lead to the need for the only subway system in Scotland and the 3rd oldest in the world.

The city has been heavily influenced by residents from its past with a scattering of Charles Rennie Macintosh buildings and some of the country's best art galleries around the city. This is also one of the best places in the country for music events with the SECC and Barrowlands being 2 of the main music venues in Scotland attracting artists such as Britney Spears, Take That and Adele.
