The University of Glasgow is the second oldest university in Scotland. The magnificent Main Building of the University, designed in the Gothic style by Sir George Gilbert Scott, is one of the city's best known landmarks. The University has been on the Gilmorehill site since 1871 when it moved from the city centre where it had been located since its foundation in 1451.
Glasgow is vibrant and friendly with abundant cultural and recreational facilities and offers a gateway to the Scottish Highlands. Within an hour's drive lie Loch Lomond and Rob Roy country; a little beyond lies some of the most beautiful and unspoiled countryside in Britain.
