Destination Glasgow!

Glasgow - the city of love!

Scotland’s biggest city has been named one of the most popular destinations in the world


A global study, by flight booking site, has published a list of 200 worldwide cities in a global report into the most searched for destinations in 2017, and which places are on trend for 2018.

Mykonos in Greece grabbed the number one spot with a search increase month on month of more than 1000% in 2017. Glasgow is one of only five UK destinations appearing on the list, behind Birmingham and Manchester, but above London and Edinburgh.


Scotland’s biggest city is bursting with banter
and crammed full of culture
