Glasgow and surrounding area help

Jump to last reply

I found a really cheap flight from Halifax to Glasgow ($500 direct) so am looking into going late September. It will be a short trip, a week maximum. I probably will go for a day trip or even a couple days in Edinburgh, as it is so close and doable by train, and who knows when I'll be in Scotland again.

Now my big question is... has anyone done any countryside sight seeing by train only? I am traveling solo so won't be renting a car, and I cannot go on a bus tour for anxiety and motion sickness reasons. I do however love trains, and have traveled on them quite a bit in Europe.

Is there anything interesting I could see from Glasgow or would I be better off just sticking to the 2 cities, since I might just be there 5 nights anyway?

Thanks in advance :)
