Camping.... in glasgow.... I dunno never noticed any campsites.
My mate and I bumped into a load of 18 year old Belgians in Kinlochleven a few years back, who were visiting Scotland during a gap year.
There was about 10 of them, a mixture of guy and girls and all really nice.
They told us they had a bad experience with the police in Glasgow.
Apparently they had got off the bus from the airport late on the Saturday night, walked just outside the station and tried to pitch 3 tents on the small strip of grass right next to it (Cowcaddens Rd). The police arrived quickly and advised them that it was a really bad idea and gave them the address of a nearby hostel.
The youngsters were genuinely pissed off and couldn't believe that they were not allowed to camp there!
As someone who used to live 2 mins away from the bus station, I was happy to tell them that the police saved them from losing all of their stuff. Buchanan Bus station late at night is an awful place, really really dodgy.
I can only imagine how funny it looked on CCTV, 10 youngsters pitching tents in the dodgiest part of Glasgow city centre on a Saturday night
