Lynnski: Why is the idea of a nightclub built in a disused railway station such a very very bad idea? I can't see such a facility impacting negatively on the area at all. There are a lot of pubs around that neck of the woods, but not many clubs. Perhaps this can offer something different for folks i...

High five, Jay Kay! Telt ye! The thing is, until they demolish the whole thing then it will get worse every year! Do you think The Nauld will get to keep the award after a 3rd win?

Ah, now! Can anyone give me some more info on this place? I understand that the building is 18th Century, and that the wood panelling etc. was a 19th Century addition, but that the wee ballroom upstairs is - paint and bar aside - just as was. I was shown round the place the other day, and it's absol...

Aye. Jackie Bird the Bridge. Put some gigantic illuminous eyes on it, with a big smiley, friendly mouth to welcome any small craft that venture that far up the Clyde. It would become beloved of the city's children and water-bourne visitors, even if it's slight build quality and skeletal design did s...

The Wickerman it is! Fantastic!

I've never seen Brigadoon though, and I am tempted! That said, if they're dishing out whisky then I can't have just the one.... it could get messy! Aye well, why not!

Let's call it Barney. Barney the Bridge. Put some gigantic illuminous eyes on it, with a big smiley, friendly mouth to welcome any small craft that venture that far up the Clyde. It would become beloved of the city's children and water-bourne visitors. Well it's a better idea than any the Cooncil ha...

Mercantile Bridge - Recognising the merchants' role in the development of Glasgow's economy. I suggest Bevvie Merchant's Bridge, recognising the primary use for the Broomielaw in recent decades.

Who says that a town can't win more than once? It's the worst and there are none worse. It's the Muhammed Ali or rank-rotten towns. Give it back it's plukey crown!

That said, hope you enjoy your stay! :D

How can it not be Cumbernauld? I know it's received a great deal of attention in this respect in recent years, but it should win this award every single year until they raze the entire town. From the famously proposterous town centre building (which was, I have to admit, a joyous place for a kid to ...
