We caught the train into Glasgow from our cruise ship. It was so easy and a straight shot. Let’s you out in the busy part of town where lots of shopping. Grab the train/hop on and off combo for a great savings.

Arrived on Monday in the rush hour and was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to move around compared to the London termini. Travelled to Largs on Wednesday and found time to examine the architecture - very interesting and the station staff were most helpful.

Spent time just looking at the building, but also caught a train. Helpful staff though unfortunately the "left luggage" was full ( it was a Bank Holiday w/e so you're forgiven )

This is a very large building, great architecture outside and what looks like original wood inside, even to the shops.

Having travelled through this station twice in the last week on our way to and from a walking holiday in Arran, I have to say that it scores very highly on both efficiency and also architectural beauty. The two do not always go together hand...More

Found the station and the staff very accommodating, even had umbrella bags to stop brollies dripping all over the floors and making it slippery.
