The Ben Nevis is a cosy pub on Glasgow's Argyle Street with warm Scottish banter and a roaring turf fire. Three nights a week, live folk sessions create an even toastier glow, making this a lovely place to shelter on a winter's night with a few whiskies.

It's all too easy to while away the hours at this cosy Hope Street pub. With a massive collection of whiskies (over 560) and a set of staff who know their stuff, it might be the weather forcing you in, but it's the selection that'll keep you there until kicking out time.

Stravaigin is one of the most charming hideaways in Glasgow, and the perfect place to sit over great food, great wine and great conversation on a cold winter's night. From the higgledy piggledy layout  to the fairy lights along the bar, this whole bar is a cosy place for hearty grub and drinks.
