The Scotland Guide

Glasgow has a wide variety of universities and colleges, ranging from the fifteenth-century Glasgow University to a clutch of colleges dealing with the traditional arts and sciences, and newer disciplines in health, leisure and technology.

The articles range from overviews of an institution`s history to the detailed description of some of the more interesting buildings. The most detailed section is Glasgow University as it can boast the best collection of public buildings in Glasgow, together with a number of the city`s museums and galleries.
