Some would say the 'real' city in Scotland is Glasgow. Like other one-time British Industrial Heavyweights, Glasgow is almost unrecognisable from the past. Style, Culture & World-Class Rugby to boost, the city is fast becoming one of our favourites.
As with anywhere in Scotland, the welcome in Glasgow is friendly and sincere. The tartan tat you find on the streets of the 'other' Scottish City is replaced by what locals would call the real Scotland.
This City takes its sport very seriously and the famous footballing icons of Celtic and Rangers dominate the local back pages.
However, the city also bears a proud Rugby heritage. The Glasgow Warriors are former Guinness Pro-14 Champions and with some of Britain's finest players on show, they are always an exiting team to watch.
An excellent rugby destination for Youth & Senior rugby teams alike, The Rugby Tour Specialists recommend planning a tour to Glasgow in unison with a Warriors fixture. Experiencing first-hand the atmosphere of the Scotstoun on a Friday night is not to be missed and will be a highlight of any sporting trip to the City.
