    Very good connection to Glasgow city with the 500 first bus and the best thing- with the app you can simply buy the tickets on your phone!

    Fairy Pools, in Glen Brittle(Isle of Skye), along the Brittle river is one of the most popular place to go for a walk. As evident from the name, it's fairy-like ambience takes your breath away.

    If getting picked up and your lift is late, get them to pick you up in the holiday inn car park - it's free for 15 minutes and warmer to wait at

    The fastest airport you'll ever use. It takes me about 7 mins to get from the door to the gate. This is including luggage check in, passport and security checks. Similarly on the way out 5min max

    The airport is probably bigger than you realise, leave plenty time to get to your gate. A quick pint in the Sanderling is tradition. WiFi is free for the first hour and easy to set up.

    If you arrive at domestics and are getting picked up at the drop off walk all the way along the check-in desks and exit at international arrivals to stay inside from the elements for a little longer

    The shuttle bus to the centre is as fast as a taxi and stops on quite a few places in the centre... Singles are only £6 vs £20-£25 taxi

    The cheapest way to/from the airport is take a bus 757 McGill's to Paisley Gilmour Street and then train to Glasgow Central. It costs only 3,5£ and takes around 35 minutes.

    Kids soft play area near gate 27. Quiet and secluded for little ones to run around.

    Have always loved this airport. Pleasure is dramatically increased if you have two yellow roses from your husband's Mum sticking out of your purse. :-)

    There's free wifi for 1 hr, Tesco before security has normal prices + fill your own empty bottle using a distributor located on your way to the gate for free

    Longing for the intimate touch of another human being? Try leaving your keys in your pocket while going through security and be treated to a complimentary pat down

    When two loonie's tried to drive bombs into the terminal several years ago it was Glaswegian taxi drivers who crashed into them and then pulled them out for a few punches!

    Nearest station to Glasgow Airport is Paisley Gilmour Street which connects to the airport by bus: McGill's 757 bus or taxi. Then travel to Glasgow Central Station. Buy a roundabout ticket for value

    There's a nice array of plug sockets inside Eat in the Departure Lounge. Tucked away at the back wall.

    The arrivals area was bit small, disappointing and the airport is very busy. Departure area full with food options. Security area just works.

    The immigration counters for non-EU passports upon arrival have increased. So now non-EU tourists and students will not have to spend hours waiting to get through the immigration!

    2014 prices: Taxi to city around £22, Bus £8.50 return (within a month) or £6.50 one way. Dodgy taxis are cheaper, possibly, but risk dodgy behaviour.

    Try to choose weekdays flight. It's cheaper than the weekend. At least , avoid Sunday.

    Update on the shuttle bus: 6 one way, 8 return, free wifi. No credit cards (despite the signs) at the time of my visit. 20 minutes or less to the centre.

    Very loud music after security check, not a good start for a quiet flight home. The airport is bigger than I expected. ' shame the whisky's are more expensive than back home in the Netherlands.

    Park at the BP garage if you are waiting to pick someone up. If the police see you waiting in the Drop Off zone you will be given a ticket!
