Get a scotrail ticket & branch out from the city center. The train has wifi and views for days. When you're back in city center check out Grill on the Corner for steak and lobster. Halloumi for seafood and dessert. Tiki Bar & Kitsch Inn for DRINKS!

It’s a big city but the center was good to walk with tons of shopping and some nice indoor malls. Venturing off of Buchanan Street gets you to more nice restaurants but the farther you get from it, the less kept the streets. I would go there again.
