Speaking of Finnieston, the publication said: "Long gone are the days when Glasgow’s Finnieston neighbourhood was a raffish and rundown ramble of houses built for workers powering the city’s burgeoning shipbuilding industry.

"Today ‘WeMo’ (West of Motorway), as local Wags have dubbed it, is the city’s go-to hipster hub. The savvy set from Byres Road have upped sticks here, bringing their creativity and energy, whilst Finnieston retains enough of its raffish vibe to spice up the grand old sandstone buildings.

"The main action unfurls on ‘The Strip’ along Argyle Street, although it is spilling over into neighbouring lanes.

"Things change quickly in Finnieston, so you might find the local hairdresser has become a bar, or just branched out into serving cool cocktails alongside cool cuts."

Giving tips on where to head, The Telegraph also offered advice on where to eat and drink.

They wrote: "The Finnieston ( was pivotal in kickstarting the area’s rebirth – it’s still spot on for cocktails (think small batch Scottish gin, not whisky) and Isle of Cumbrae oysters.

"Crabshakk ( buzzes with regulars appreciating Glasgow’s best seafood (the shared platter is the savvy local choice), while Peter McKenna at The Gannet ( plays with the best of Scotland’s bountiful culinary larder with his creative multi-course fiesta."
