Home to the Glaswegians, the land of Glasgow is astonishingly green and bursting with countryside colour, alongside the River Clyde. Some of the first small settlements of Glasgow started along the River Clyde, and now, Glasgow has grown to be the largest populated city in Scotland.

The culture of Glasgow is rich including famous operas, music, curling, ballets and (of course) football. In fact, Glasgow was named the European Capital of Culture back in the 1990s. If you’re looking to delve into all things Scottish, Glasgow is definitely the place to be.

Pros and Cons of Filming Locations in Glasgow

Pros

  • Friendly City
    Glasgow is known as one of the friendliest cities in the UK. When arriving at your filming location in Glasgow, absolutely expect to meet some friendly people on the way.

  • Modern and Old World History
    Glasgow, Scotland is a mecca of two time periods clashing together. From the historical medieval buildings to the modern art and music culture, it is quite a dichotomy. This makes it the perfect place to take inspiration from, playing to a wide variety of interests.

  • Transport
    For those not able to drive, or who simply do not own a car, Glasgow’s city transport is a highly connected route. The transport can help you get around quickly – especially if you have several different locations for filming.

  • Carbon Zero Home Project
    As far as modern architecture goes, one major home project has started recently in Glasgow. A carbon zero home has been built by Glasgow regeneration specialists “Beyond Zero Homes”, who are a group of 20 home building organizations. The house can be found on the Broomielaw campus to be visited and learned about. That’s one major win for the environment from Glasgow!

  • Accommodation
    If you are not from Glasgow and are just visiting, Glasgow has many housing accommodations for visitors. As far as Air B&B’s go, there are over 6,000 locations where you can stay for the time you are there. If you’re not a fan of Air B&B’s, Glasgow also offers a wide range of hotels you can stay at. These are not your everyday hotel either, some of Glasgow’s hotels are actually inside of century-old castles. Talk about bang for your buck!

Cons

  • Work Hard, Play Hard
    As a Glaswegian, the culture is to work hard play harder. The drinking culture in Scotland is one of the many globally-known aspects of the city. If you are not used to seeing this, then it could perhaps be a bit of a culture shock.

  • Property Size
    If you’re thinking about relocating to Glasgow, taking the compact nature of their property size into consideration is advised. The houses are quite small and there’s not much property when living in the city. For those that seek wide open spaces, this could be an issue.

  • Weather
    Keeping the theme with most if not all of the UK in general, the weather is very grey and very wet here. If you are someone who thrives in the sunshine and loves getting some Vitamin D everyday, Glasgow may not be the place for you.
