Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and the third largest in the United Kingdom. Locals, known as 'Glaswegians', number some 581,000 within the city, which is well-known for its distinctive Scottish accent and the widely-spoken local forms of the Scots language. It is a strong business centre, while in sport it will host the 2014 Commonwealth Games. It is the northern terminus of the West Coast Main Line and is connected to England by way of the M74 motorway.
