David Ross left this review about The Scotia Bar

This is one of a handful of pubs which claim to be Glasgow’s oldest. The Scotia certainly looks the part, though, with a low beamed ceiling, dark wall panelling and intimate snugs off the main bar. The walls are decorated with old city photographs and historical maps. Although it is best known as a folk music venue, rock, country and blues fans are also catered for and live music is advertised four nights a week. Impromptu jam sessions are also a regular feature and a pub guitar is kept behind the bar in case customers neglect to bring their own. Famous artists to have performed here include Billy Connolly, Gerry Rafferty, Hamish Imlach, The Poets and members of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band. There is also a Writers’ Group which meets on the second Monday of each month. On the drink front, the standard draught beer selection is available as well as a few real ales. A pint of Festival Ale cost me £3.05. If your preference is for traditional, old world style pubs, the Scotia is not to be missed.
