Edinburgh. I've lived in Glasgow, and while I appreciate the greater 'buzz' surrounding it, it still lacks the beauty and traditional aspects of its eastern neighbour.

Plus, there's more neds in the pubs there.

I still have to say that I prefer Glasgow.

There's not that many neds and besides what pubs do you go that are frequented by neds?
Answer - the wrong kind!

Neds are ubixquitious to any town and city in Scotland.

Although Edinburgh is quite pretty in parts, I'd have to choose Glasgow. It's better for shopping and nightlife and there are less annoying tourists.

Edinburgh.

It's beautiful!

The nightlife here is great. Glasgow's nightlife, while it may have more clubs and bars, is scarier imo.

Glasgow is too big whereas I think Edinburgh is just the right size.

i totally agree... there are also more places to go and chill out in the summer. there are absolutely no parks/gardens in the centre of glasgow!

Edinburgh used to be my favourite, but I'd go for Glasgow now - less touristy, and much better for gigs, etc.

Having spent the weekend in Glasgow I can safely say that I much prefer Edinburgh. Glasgow is too big, and I miss the character that Edinburgh city centre has compared with Glasgow's endless grid. Boring.

They get better gigs more frequently but it's not hard to get to Glasgow from Edinburgh.

Funny that Glasgow actually felt smaller to me, but maybe I didn't see enough of it.

To me, Glasgow is just Scotland's Manchester/Birmingham/insert large, ugly, rough city here; Edinburgh has a very unique character and is beautiful.

It also suits my interests a lot more - I don't enjoy shopping or clubbing, but I like going to the theatre, arts events and the like. Edinburgh, no doubt about it.
