Located on Argyle Street, The Ben Nevis is one of the cosiest pubs in Glasgow. Loved by friendly locals and boasting a roaring turf fire, this toasty joint is a great place to rest your feet. It also hosts regular live music, with drinking and jigging taking place 'til late.

Jinty McGuinty's

Jinty McGuinty's is a cosy pub in Glasgow by default. This place is tiny. But add a few pints of Guinness, the ubiquitous Irish pub banter, and some fantastic live trad and you have yourself one mighty winter warmer on Ashton Lane.
