Glasgow - Jamica St & St Enochs 1/2

I love to sing and I love to drink scotch. Most people would rather hear me drink scotch.

George Burns

Leave Glasgow Central Station by the right hand side exit and after going down the stairs cross over the road and turn down to the right. O'Neils is in the middle of this block. Cross over and walk down to the corner to find The Grant Arms. Cross over to continue down Jamaica St. The Crystal Palace is at the next corner and the opposite corner has MacSorley’s. Cross over and turn into Howard St to see The Imperial on the right. Return to Jamaica St and turn left and just at the corner is The Mint & Lime. Now walk across the bridge and go down to the second crossroads and find The Laurieston.
Walk back up to the bridge and turn right, walking along the riverside to the pedestrian bridge and cross back across the river. When across turn to the right and reach the road, crossing over to go up Maxwell St. Turn left at the top and on the corner is Coyote. Continue left and walk along Howard St to reach another corner pub, Hootenanny. Diagonally opposite this corner on the left of the square is Times Square and then Crafty Joe’s.
