Glasgow (Scottish Gaelic: Glaschu) is the most populous city in Scotland, and the third most populous city in the United Kingdom. Glasgow’s Gaelic name, Glaschu, means “Green Glen.”

Question – What would locals like others know about Glasgow? About Scotland? Also, how would these questions be translated in local languages?!

This week the city hosts the Climate COP26 and Planeta.com will use the opportunity to take our own virtual tour and update this page with links to resources, people, and places of note. This page is by no means complete, but we will be making focused edits and updates throughout the month of November.
