The Return of Whiskey to a Revived City

Located four and a half hours north of London by train, or an hour’s travel west from Edinburgh, this city on the River Clyde makes it easy to really escape for a few days. Happily, it’s also easy to acquire a local’s sense of place. Start out in the historic City Center and Merchant City districts north of the river, then hop the subway to the burgeoning West End, Partick and Finnieston districts to the west, or continue along the subway’s 15-station loop to explore the diverse neighborhoods of the oft-overlooked Southside.
