To say Glasgow’s reputation is chequered would be an understatement. To some it is Edinburgh’s friendlier neighbour, where people speak their mind, and authentic Scottish culture resides. To others, it’s knock-off goods sold at the Barras Market, knife crime, and economic deprivation.
Glasgow has long had a reputation as a tough city, where men of steel work long, physical hours down at the shipyards and enjoy a few pints and maybe a scrap in the pub afterwards. But this reputation as Edinburgh’s less-cultured and more thuggish bigger brother is one that should be firmly consigned to the dustbin.
Some may argue that it was Glasgow being European City of Culture in 1990 that kickstarted the renaissance that the city has experienced over the last three decades, others might argue that it was Irvine Welsh’s seminal novel, Trainspotting, written in the local dialect, known as Glasgow Patter, and Danny Boyle’s genre-defining, adrenaline-fuelled film that were more responsible for bringing Glasgow back into the limelight.
