InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Glasgow

Hello to all Americans in Glasgow! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Glasgow? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Glasgow which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Glasgow’s stunning architecture and rich heritage have seen it grown into a vibrant city. The most populous city in Scotland is a port city known for being a national cultural hub, its Victorian and art nouveau architecture, acclaimed museums, thriving music scene, and much more! With the subway, train, and bus services as well as many cycle routes, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Scotstoun or Bearsden, for example, which are just 20 minutes away from Glasgow’s center.

Although Glasgow has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Glasgow, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
