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.

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