Where to stay

Glasgow has a variety of hotels and accomodation to suit most requirements and budgets. The weekend of Episode 8 is a busy one however in the Glasgow calendar, so we'd recommend booking something in advance. For general info you can use the Visit Scotland website.

If you are looking for a hotel, we have used The Lorne Hotel previously and is recommended.  For hostels we also recommend the Euro Hostel which is centrally located and close to Central Station.
