It will be our first time in Scotland, traveling there for a conference. We are interested in museums and local gastronomy. We will try to hit the major tourist attractions but would also like to discover less known and typical spots. We will be traveling with our 15 months-old baby.

    I love Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in the west end, as much for the architecture as whats inside. Also check out The Burrell Collection in Pollock Estate (on the east Side), gorgeous parklands to wander around and then a spot of tea and tour of the private art collection. The Gallery of Modern Art is bang in the city centre so that's worth a look too. More info on the galleries here;

    The city centre has some interesting architecture but is very heavily high street shopping, Have a mosy around the west end (Byers Rd and Ashton Lane) which has more of a villagey feel, and check out the Botanic Gardens and kibble palace whilst your there.

    Glasgow is not known for its gastronomy...... but a few of my faves when I lived there include Stravaigin in Kelvinbridge , Rab Ha's in Merchant City for authentic pub fare- you should try haggis n tatties, its actually very nice. The Dhabba (indian ) in merchant city, Two Fat Ladies in the west end for upmarket fish n chips.

    Sorry they're not all within walking distance of the SECC! But Galsgow is relatively small - jump on the train/underground and that will whiz you around to most of these places. over 6 years ago

    I agree about the Kelvingrove Art Galleries and museums, definitely worth a look. Also the Botanic Gardens. If you like Indian food, Glasgow has some fantastic curry houses too over 6 years ago
