Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, and third most populous settlement with city status in the United Kingdom. Glasgow is situated on the River Clyde in the country's West Central Lowlands. Inhabitants of the city are referred to as "Glaswegians" or "Weegies". It is the fourth most visited city in the UK. The city has transformed itself from being the once mighty powerhouse of industrial Britain to a center for commerce, tourism, and culture. Glasgow has become one of the most visited cities in the British Isles, and visitors will find a revitalised city center, the best shopping outside London without a doubt, excellent parks and museums (most of which are free), and easy access to the Highlands and Islands.
In fact, for the visitor, public transportation in the central area can be a stressful and very slow experience thanks to the almost unfathomable one way system, bus lanes (monitored by police cameras) and pedestrian lined streets. To avoid these problems, it is best to choose Royal American for your ground transportation. Our drivers are professional and locally-knowledgeable, so they will always get you to your destination on time and in a comfortable manner. When you choose Royal American, you have options like chauffeur service, limousine service, hourly options, and an impressive fleet of cars.
Glasgow International Airport (IATA: GLA), located 8 miles west of the center of Glasgow near the towns of Paisley and Renfrew, this is the city's principal airport, and the main direct long haul and transatlantic entry airport into Scotland. There are regular scheduled UK and European destinations, holiday charters, and the airport is the hub for the Scottish island network operated by Loganair. Glasgow Prestwick International Airport (IATA: PIK) is about 50 km south west of Glasgow on the Ayrshire coast, is the city's secondary airport and a hub for Ryanair. Edinburgh International Airport (IATA: EDI), although not an immediately obvious choice, is easily accessible from Glasgow since it is on the western edge of Edinburgh, approximately 60 km away and about an hours drive via the M8 motorway. Whichever airport you choose, when you let Royal American handle your airport transfer, you will experience VIP service from the moment you step off the plane to the moment you step back on it.
