just a thought: Partick was once a district known for its shipyards and grain mills, playing an integral role in Scotlandís industrial revolution in the 19th century. Now Partick has been named as one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the UK thanks to its street art and nearby museums  :o The Scotsman

It got No 9 listing in the UK!

www.glasgowist.com/partick-beats-finnieston-in-coolest-neighbourhood-guide/

Finnieston made it to No 15 on the same listing.

And that is why 'Glasgow's Miles Better'  ;)
