Pubs, which can be home to drunks and soccer fans, are minefields in other ways, the Glasgow Daily Record reports. Posters on virtualtourist.com have a lot of advice on the subject.
"Don't stare at anyone if you're in a pub," one person advises. "They may take it the wrong way and beat you up. If you are going to go to a 'small' town, don't get drunk and make advances on the women... I have tried this.... it is dangerous."
Another simply warns, "Don't get drunk in a strange pub."
A poster who claims to be an "adventurous eater" does not like haggis, the Scottish national dish of minced meat boiled in a sheep's stomach. Curiously, the poster describes haggis as "really bland."
As for drunks, visitors are warned not to give them money. One wise poster warns that criticizing a soccer team in front of a fan could lead to physical damage.
