When is the best time to fly to Glasgow?

There is also the option to go for the best of both worlds by booking a trip during spring or early autumn when crowds are thinner and tickets are still in lower demand. While it will still be on the cooler side, the spring blooms make March a great time to visit the various greens and gardens in Glasgow.
