My home town ,some of the schemes(housing estates/projects should be avoided (visitors would have no reason to be there anyway.)Late at night when the pubs and clubs empty can be a bit rowdy but mostly safe,I think the natives on the whole are very friendly to strangers .

Glasgow really is not as dangerous as most people think or say, especially nowadays. Lived in Glasgow for about a year and generally felt safer than I do in my own home town.

I have travelled to over 50 countries over 35 years mostly for work.

Most of my family have been in Scotland for well over 200 years

My observations are thus;

Glasgow pound for pound is as clean, sophisticated and civilised as any comparable city anywhere in the world.

Scotland offers a quality of life (if you choose to partake) only really found in other parts of Europe such as Iceland, Norway and Ireland

The rest are nothing special when you exclude the sunshine!

I lived in Glasgow for almost 8 years. I found it very safe and friendly.

I think it gets more dangerous at night only. Not very dangerous though

Ok how the hell is glasgow safer than London.I mean like yes it’s not that dangerous in Glasgow although I never went there I do know that uk in general is safe because although I have not been in Glasgow I have been to other parts of UK.So yeah Glasgow is not that dangerous but for a British city it is.I have a Glaswegian friend who goes back to Glasgow on holiday and what I heard from him is that it is not that bad but it still is worse than the rest of uk

growing up in castlemilk, having family in Royston, Maryhill, pollok, Springburn, drumchapel, ballieston, easterhouse and in the gorbals, I find Glasgow really rough. its fine if you grow up there because you know how to deal with the crime but if you move to one of these areas, people find it very unsafe. A neighbour of mine only lasted 2 weeks before she had moved out of her flat in castlemilk.
#Demetrius on Jan 25, 2017 :
why then is it much less safer than Edinburgh, according to the site?
#Andy on Apr 01, 2016 :
Just like the last comment, Glasgow is a very safe place to be and, I too, live here. People very friendly and, go out of their way to assist Visitors
