Glasgow or Edinburgh - Better Eats?

sivyaleah | Jan 26, 2007 09:31 AM

My husband and I are considering a trip to Scotland. However, having limited time we find outselves in the terrible position of possibly having to choose between Glasgow and Edinburgh as far as the main city to visit, since there is too much else we want to see in the more rural areas as well.

I'm slightly leaning towards Glasgow, mainly because of the Victorian influence and I work in architecture, and have a desire to see Mackintosh's work.

I'm totally torn about this, as both cities are equally appealing to me for vastly different reasons as I'm sure you are all aware. However, what it may come down to is which one has a better restaurant scene, since all things being equal otherwise, it's a coin toss as far as which one we wind up picking to visit. Food matters a lot to both of us.

Any opinions? It would be most helpful to hear what others have to say about this.
