Forgot to mention, if you decide to do some retail therapy and head for Braehead Shopping Centre, although its only a 10 minute drive from the city centre, it is much more fun to take the Waterbus, especially if the weather is nice. You can see all the sights on the way there and back, and also visit the Maritime Museum at the same time.http://www.clydewaterbusservices.co.uk/
I always take my "foreign" visitors on the 5 lochs journey. My way is to go on the M8 heading for Greenock. Take the Erskine Bridge cutoff and cross the Clyde. Take the A82 for Loch Lomand. Drive along the loch on the A82 to Tarbet and then take the A83 to Arrochar. That's the end of the outward phase. You come back along the A814 past Loch Long to Garelochhead, contining past the Gareloch through Helensburgh and then back into Glasgow. The scenery is magnificent and there are plenty of places to stop for walks and you can even get an odd cup of tea or even stronger.. It takes about 4 hours without stops. (I think, I've never managed to do it without stops)
