Tartan Lodge

Glasgow is  a thriving vibrant city with loads going on, right? Tartan Lodge is a perfect location to explore it.

So we know Glasgow is  a thriving vibrant city with loads going on right? Tartan Lodge is a perfect location to explore it. Within walking distance to the bars and cafes of Merchant city and the shops and venues of the city centre, it offers an interesting riff on bunkhouse accommodation.

If you look at the website you’ll see tartan. Look more closely and you’ll see a converted church and masonic lodge with lots of rooms and space. 93 beds in a range of rooms from doubles to dorm rooms, with a range of prices to meet any budget. Many are en-suite with TVs. It is, like many city hostels, modern and funky.

 There’s a more than usual number of reasons to be planning a visit to Glasgow at the moment. If you’re quick you can catch the Celtic Connections festival with live music in venues all across the city as well as exhibitions and theatre. It is a massive affair with musicians from all over the world sharing space and collaborations with Scotland’s finest artists. If you’re more of a planning-ahead type, why not book a room to coincide with next years’s festival.
