1 The Glasgow School of Art at 167 Renfrew Street (0141-353 4526). Sign up for a tour and see Charles Rennie Mackintosh's passionate use of light and line.

2 The little orange trains that rumble around the circular underground line are cute and handy for many of the "proper" attractions.

3 Scotland Street School (0141-287 0500), a Mackintosh creation in red sandstone and glass that must have been a joy to attend.

4 The brilliantly eclectic Gallery of Modern Art, pictured, (Queen Street, 0141-229 1996) in the former 18th century home of one of the city's tobacco lords.

5 A building that took nearly a century to be realised: the House for an Art Lover. Designed by Mackintosh in 1901 for a German magazine competition, construction finally began in 1989 and ended in 1997. The House for an Art Lover (Bellahouston Park, 0141-353 4770).

6 The extraordinary Burrell Collection (Pollok Country Park, 0141-287 2550) has 8,000 pieces ranging from medieval stained glass and Chinese porcelain to works by Degas and Rodin.

7 Nearly a century ago, Mackintosh created the Willow Tea Rooms at 217 Sauchiehall Street. Twenty years ago it was restored, and leased to jeweller M M Henderson. There is often a lunchtime queue, but hang on for a table at the first-floor Room de Luxe. High-backed chairs facilitate conspiracy in a room crowded with elegance and hurrying waitresses.

8 The Lodge Inn, Glasgow City Centre 0141-221 1000 (formerly the Charing Cross Tower) is a hideous 1970s office block that has been converted into a remarkably comfortable hotel.

9 Cafe Rogano (11 Exchange Place, 0141-248 4055) is a style legend in Glasgow's own lunchtime, with stylish food in even more stylish surroundings based on the interiors of the ocean liner the Queen Mary.

10 The Mackintosh House on University Avenue (0141-330 5431) is open 9.30am-12.30pm and 1.30-5pm Mon-Sat. Situated inside the Hunterian Art Gallery, this is a near-replica of Mackintosh's home, the original of which was demolished after the Second World War. The seeds of Art Deco, not to mention Habitat, are evident.
