I think it is true that people make Glasgow. Going from Edinburgh on the train takes only about 50 minutes, but when you step out in Glasgow it has the feel of a very different place indeed, as if in a different land, and this has as much to do with the people as with the buildings. Compared with Edinburgh it feels obviously bigger (because it is bigger) but also more like somewhere where perhaps a greater variety of things happen, or at least a greater variety of certain categories of social things. They’re both great cities and I think they each benefit from the reasonably close proximity to the other.
