Historic Accommodation in the West of Scotland

Once Glasgow was the second city of the Empire, where Victorian entrepreneurs designed grand buildings. Today its fine architecture, art galleries and museums attract visitors from across the world. The countryside to the south of Glasgow is rolling and lush, whilst to the north and west, the hills and the wooded shores of the Lochs lead to the islands, linked by ferry to the mainland.
