It is the third largest city in the UK, and the largest city in Scotland, making it a hub for world-renowned research and academia. Previously seen as a “gritty” city due to its development in the industrial revolution, Glasgow has evolved into a metropolis of art and culture. It is a truly multicultural city, drawing people from all over the world whether they come to work or study in Glasgow.

Dare to Done

last year

Were an Aussie expat family (mum, dad and two sons) living in Glasgow, Scotland. We moved to Scotland Land of the Brave on a UK Ancestry Visa in September 2016. We plan to become UK citizens and hold dual Australian-UK citizenship by the end of 2022. We have British blood, Scottish spirit and Aussie pride. We say it like it is and if you dont like it you can move along.
