    I've only seen Glasgow for English Lit, but it's gorgeous there; truly.

    Both are ancients, so both have great architecture. Glasgow probably edges it, just about (although Kings College in Aberdeen is particularly impressive) but, overall, I'd go with Aberdeen. Glasgow's a great city, don't get me wrong, with some fine Pre-Victorian and Victorian architecture. However, Aberdeen's right by beautiful coastline with great countryside and castles on your doorstep, pretty much.

    I'll leave the "which is strongest" in physics to the physicists.

    Scenic would probably go to Aberdeen. But I guess it depends what you like. When I was in Aberdeen I described it as 'quaint'. It was all little cobbled streets.

    For physics I'd say Glasgow. I don't do physics, but I have came across a lot more about Glasgow just in general reading. Glasgow have a long history of physics and their department really is excellent.

    Didn't Watt and Kelvin go to Glasgow..?

    I may be wrong.

    Yep. Watt was a janitor (I think) who started playing with something and Kelvin was the young genius and has half of the west end named after him.

    Thought so :P

    Yes, that Kelvin fellow reminds me of myself, in many ways...
