A pocket sized guide book that contains a substantial amount of information for those travellers new to the city and want to see some highlights whilst on a short break.
There are 9 guided walking tours within the city all with appropriate directions and maps and 3 further excursions to places nearby for which you will need your own transport and are perhaps best suited for those contemplating a longer stay than 2-3 days. However this is not just a book packed with maps and directions, it also includes nuggets from Glasgow's rich merchantile, architectural, and social history and is well worth a read just for these aspects.
If there is one criticism, it is that this type of book can quickly become outdated when recommending places to eat or possibly shop/visit for in todays economic climate places can come and go quite quickly, or at the very least change their opening times, and it might be best to call ahead before setting out if you are thinking of visiting a particular location.

This wasn't quite what I was expecting because most of the information about places is given as part of one of the 12 tours described in the book. At first I was a bit disappointed but in fact it proved to be very useful because when looking up information about somewhere we particularly wanted to go we could easily get ideas about other places that would be nearby. There were also a few introductory/overview sections that gave some interesting information about the history of Glasgow or the Arts scene in Glasgow etc. There was a useful map on the inside cover and then lots of small additional maps for each tour and lots of inspiring photos. Before we went to Glasgow I did a lot of research on trip advisor, but once there, this little book was all we needed. It was small enough to fit in a pocket and we used it as an extra map. I would recommend it.

Good size for pocket or handbag! Easily followed tours of main attractions. Nearest tube stops would have been helpful. No tube map at all - it would have been so easy to include one as there is only one line! Tear out map very useful - why no tube map on the revers?

Recommend this as a cheap and cheerful guide!

The tours presented in this guide are ideal to discover the different sides of Glasgow.
Unfortunately, the addresses of shops ans restaurants are not up to date at all and you often face an empty shop or a complete different one at the address recommended by the guide, which is a shame for an April 2013 issue.

Guide proved very useful - followed several of the Tour routes. Some of the info slightly out of date but not a major problem!

Concise, easy to read. Probably better to have the paper version rather than the e-version, but that's just me.
