Ok I realise a lot of this can depend on the individual person, but on the whole can you rank these accents from strongest/thicket being first (i.e most difficult to understand) to clearest/easiest to understand being last? For a neutral/someone not from the area.
Scouser (Liverpudlians), Geordie (Newcastle area) or a Glasgow accent.

I'm not sure which one is the most difficult to understand, but as a Geordie, I've found quite a lot of people don't understand what I'm saying half the time

Geordie or Scouser. Glaswegian isn't that hard to understand, IMO.

The Scouse accent varies depending on the part of Liverpool, most people will know the average Scouse accent (or a poor TV impression of it) and struggle but manage to understand. If it's a softer accent from South Liverpool (think the Beatles) then most people can understand perfectly well. The North Liverpool acc not is pretty dire though, fortunately not many of the North Liverpudlians manage to escape that part of the world, so not many people are subjected to them.

I'd vote Geordie

Geordie really isn’t difficult to understand. We just talk very quickly 🤷🏼*♀️ it’s such a nice accent
Definitely not a fan of scouse

Strong Glaswegian is generally incomprehensible to most native English speakers... the rest... you get bits.

Never had an issue with any of them, to be honest. I'd probably go with Weegie if I had to chooce, because I am a Scouser, and my Ma's best mate is a Geordie, so I've grown up with both and they are very familiar.

A really strong Glaswegian accent, when to Scotland couple years ago and I didn't know what people were saying half the time.

I was just gonna say! My da and his whole fam are from edin!!!

OP I understand scousers and people from glasgow, and geordies as well but i come in contact with them the least so if theres any new age slang i probs dont know it fully. but the accent is easy to decipher, tis like a strong scouser or a weak scot in my book.

I hate how they talk in Speke now as well yknow. Used to work with a bunch of lads from Speke and it was like engaging with a broken dial up modem. (I say this as a boy from Aigburth, haha)
