|Today the city that gave birth to both comedian Billy Connolly and football manager Alex Ferguson has a host of crowd-pleasing attractions, including its fabulous Burrell Collection. Housed in an award-winning building in Pollock Country Park, this assortment of porcelain, furniture, paintings and objet d'art was donated to the city by shipping magnate William Burrell.
Some of Glasgow's most famous buildings were created by the Scottish architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh; among them are the Glasgow School of Art, Hill House, The Lighthouse (now a Mackintosh interpretation centre) and The Willow Tearooms.
The oldest building is Provand's Lordship, which dates back to 1471, but there are many other fascinating stop-offs. They include the city's Museum and Art Gallery, the People's Palace, Pollock House, Glasgow Science Centre, the Museum of Transport, the Royal Highland Fusiliers Museum, the Botanic Gardens and innumerable art galleries. Oh, and the Scottish Football Museum!
To the west of Glasgow lies the historic town of Paisley, famous for its cloth-making, and the ancient Strathclyde capital of Dumbarton to the north.
