Personally, I love the city. So much history, architecture and the people are great. I might be biased as mum comes from there and we still have relations there. We park on the road my aunt lives on, not what I would call a good area by any means, but never had any trouble or been questioned nor approached. Being fit we walk into the centre from there.
Great shame the fire at the Glasgow school of Art. Once it repaired we'll revisit. CR Mackintosh church, houses and Art Deco in the city we thought well worth the trouble to find.
If you go and don't like it, it's not far to other Scottish places of interest.
