Spy Mission Walking Trail

Glasgow Merchant City

Your mission: The dastardly Dr Weevil and his henchman Hamish have planted a bomb under Merchant Square intent on destroying the Glasgow landmark and throwing the city into disarray. Follow the trail of clues and find the code to disarm the bomb, ultimately saving the city from disaster!

The trail starts in George Square, leading you away from Merchant City, exploring Buchanan St, the River Clyde walkway and Glasgow Green before returning to Merchant City via St Andrews Aquare and through quaint little streets.

Clues for the mission are found on monuments, inscriptions and street signs along the way. A great opportunity for you to enjoy the shops, cafes and sights while keeping your kids entertained too!
