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.

why then is it much less safer than Edinburgh, according to the site?
