Great venue with good views. Can be a bit distracting when security staff keep walking up and down in front of you however, but realise security is tight nowadays. Concert was sponsored by Barrs and I found my drink was completely undrinkable with the cola,...More

If you live in central or south Glasgow then fine. If you don’t then be prepared for a long commute. It takes forever to get away from the place - car, taxi, train.

This piece of architecture is really not very functional. What looks quuite nice in panoramic photography, is not that special to use and very average on inside. It is in middle of nowhere.

I've been up in the gallery, and we had a good view. The whole place is not too big

Don't take kids to the gallery they can't see. View isn't great and if it's something musical you can't stand to dance. The stewards r ninjas.
