No, but everyone thinks it is. WHen i'm visiting family in Cheshire with my partner people actually back away when he tells them he's glaswegian. I don't mean soft types either, the Manchester rough lads are just as scared.

There are places you might not want to go to at night - just like in any city, but in the main it's a colourful and welcoming place.

I like Tinderbox (a coffee shop on Byres road) for daytime hanging out, Whistler's Mother (restaurant/pub on Byres Road) and Mono (vegan menu cafe/recordshop/fairtrade shop/restaurant/bar (all under 1 roof) on Kings street - near the 13th note) for evening meals out with a difference. Optimo at the Sub club on a Sunday night is a good alternative type of night. Cheesy Pop, Friday night at the QMU (Queen Margaret Union, on Campus at the University of Glasgow) is a fun night out where you can wear jeans and not bother to put mascara on.

The CCA (sauchiehall st) often has good free exhibitions, there's one just now on records which is interactive and has some really cool stuff going on, great for a Saturday afternoon when it's raining (which it will be). The botanics are cool too, especially in summer when half of glasgow comes out to lie and soak out the solitary annual ray of sunlight. I am often to be found there, feeding squirrels and pigeons. I'm the one with pigeons sitting on me.

Me and my partner go so often that the pigeons recognise us before we've even got the food out and start following us around!

We usually feed them sunflower seeds and peanuts. Bread is way bad for them....
