Known for breeding tough leaders like ex-Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson but also comedians like Billy Connolly, this city may have a steely exterior but it's soft at heart.

Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, eclipsing the country’s capital, Edinburgh. Straddling the banks of the River Clyde, in its industrial heyday it was the world’s shipbuilding yard but following decimation of its heavy industries, the city has spent the last 30 years reinventing itself.

Today Glasgow is a leading example of “how cities can change their economies,” according to Scott Taylor, chief executive of Glasgow City Marketing Bureau.
