Glasgow is the third largest city in Britain (after London
and Birmingham) and the largest city in Scotland.
It also is one of the most popular cities in Britain for tourists. Glasgow
was once heavily industrialized and famous as a major shipbuilding city, but it is now also a center for tourism.
Cruise ships dock at Greenock on the Clyde River, and the cruise lines offer a nice variety of shore excursions to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond, or elsewhere in the scenic Scottish countryside.
