The population of Glasgow is approximately 600,000 people and it is the biggest city in Scotland. Glasgow reached its peak of over 1 million people in 1939 which resulted in large scale relocation to the surrounding areas of Glasgow in the 1960’s.
Glasgow is situated on the River Clyde in the West Central Lowlands of the country and residents are known as Glaswegians. During the Industrial Revolution Glasgow became a centre for chemicals, textiles and marine engineering.
As well as manufacturing industries including shipbuilding, engineering, brewing, distilling, printing, chemicals and textiles Glasgow is known for its financial services, software development and substantial growth in the number of call centres in Glasgow.
