List Of Places In Glasgow
Places that are part of Glasgow vary depending on context as Glasgow is the name of a number sub-divisions of Scotland. Arguably the most common usage of the term is to describe the local authority area styled Glasgow City. Like most large cities however, Glasgow has long outgrown the territorial limits of its original settlement area, with Glasgow City and neighboring settlements expanding towards each other to the point of their becoming a single urban settlement.
In accordance with the standard practice of naming larger city-regions after the major city on which they are based, it has become common to refer to the larger area as Greater Glasgow. The extent of this single settlement area is largely undefined, with different places included for different purposes such as regional health boards, travel to work, retail catchment, and housing areas.

“Every morning I woke in dread, waiting for the day nurse to go on her rounds and announce from the list of names in her hand whether or not I was for shock treatment, the new and fashionable means of quieting people and of making them realize that orders are to be obeyed and floors are to be polished without anyone protesting and faces are to be made to be fixed into smiles and weeping is a crime.”
—Janet Frame (b. 1924)
