MUST-TRY LOCAL DISH
Tattie scones! They’re a simple combination of potatoes, flour, butter, and salt.

BEST PHOTO OP
University of Glasgow. The stunning architecture of University of Glasgow’s main building will have you feeling like you’re at Hogwarts.
Standing on the wrong side of the street and missing the bus. They drive on the opposite side of the road in the UK and it did take some getting used to.
McVitie’s Dark Chocolate Digestives. These biscuits are extremely addictive and affordable.
