Luggage

There are several locations where you can leave your bags if you arrive before your hotel or Infiniti Properties apartment is ready, or your flight is a long time after check out.

Several websites, including BagBnB and Stasher offer paid services to take your bags in the Glasgow area.

There is a luggage drop service at Glasgow Central Train Station (map).

If none of these options work for you, you might be able to use our office to leave your luggage if you are staying with us in an Infiniti Properties apartment, available from AirBnB or Booking.com. The address is Infiniti Properties, 1016 Argyle Street, Glasgow G3 8LX on the western edge of the city, 10 minutes by taxi but on the way to the airport. This would only be available as a service between 9 am and 5:30 pm weekdays and it is best to contact us in advance for this.

From Glasgow International Airport (GLA) to Glasgow city centre

To get to Glasgow city centre from Glasgow's closest airport, GLA, you can take a taxi from the rank that is outside arrivals. The journey should cost around £20, but may vary depending on the time of day, and your exact destination. Always ask the driver before you leave for an estimate.

You can also take a bus, the number 500 the Airport Express. Bus stops are available just outside the terminal, and this route takes you to Buchanan Street Bus Station, close to the heart of the city. The bus should cost under £10. The stops on this service include Bothwell Street, Bothwell Street at Hope Street (near Central Station), George Square at Queen Street Station, North Hanover Street, Buchanan Bus Station.

The bus and trains should get you to the city centre in around 15 - 20 minutes.

Finally, you may walk to one of Paisley's train stations, Gilmour Street or St James, however, this walk may be quite long and tiring, especially if you have heavy luggage, so a short taxi ride to the station, or bus route 757 is advisable.

From Prestwick International Airport (PIK) to Glasgow city centre

Train travel is convenient from Prestwick Airport as it has its own terminal. The journey to Glasgow Central Station should take around 45 minutes.

There are bus services to Glasgow, and the X77 and X99 will run day and night. This terminates in the Buchanan Street Bus Station, and will cost around £12.

Taxis can be hired, naturally, but this is the expensive option and not recommended unless money is no object! A private hire cab might be cheaper, but these will generally have to be ordered by telephone from a local company.

Places of natural beauty and great scenery in Scotland

On of Scotland's most notable features is its landscape and breathtaking views. We also have a few man-made spots truly worthy of that Instagram moment. Here are some of our favourites in or around the city of Glasgow.

Loch Lomond

Access this most beautiful loch (lake) by bus or train from Glasgow city centre. Enjoy the gentle sun or misty rain, each with their own show-stopping effects. Surrounded on all sides by dramatic mountains, you can also access nearby Ben Lomond.

Ben Lomond

The most southern Munro (a Scottish mountain over 3000 feet or 914 metres approximately), Ben Lomond is actually a relatively easy walk for those with reasonable fitness. Accessed from Rowardennan car park. With a well-paved track that many tourists follow each day, this is an easy way to get stunning view over Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, if the weather permits. Please always take care when climbing Scottish mountains, as weather can change quickly and they can hold dangers for the unprepared. Find safety tips, and more info on Ben Lomond at Walkhighlands.

Pollok Country Park

Home to the Burrell Collection (currently under refurbishment at time of writing), this park has many miles of walking, playing fields, children's play, and activities. Visit the historical Pollok House, and step back in time.

Beloved by the locals, Pollok Park is a great way to escape to the country, whilst staying in the south side of Glasgow!

Glasgow Botanic Gardens

Containing graceful Victorian greenhouses, the Botanic Gardens are a pleasant change of pace in Glasgow's West End.
