  • It's nice and squarey. (Actually it's a nice place to sit in the admittedly rare sun, and admire the architecture and so forth. But yeah, how does one review a square? "It's sides are, like, really equal in length, and, like totally perpendicular...")
  • Just a square isn't it. Good meeting place, couple of bars around about and it's good at Xmas. Other than that, it's a good square, 4 sides, maybe more of a rectangle but that doesn't have the same ring to it.
  • A square, in Glasgow. Not much too it, there's some statues, some benches and a patch of grass you can chill out on if the weather permits. It's a decent opportunity for anyone interested in photography of older buildings.
  • A really nice area great place for taking pictures. Also has some really nice places to eat eg Jamies Italian
