Saltmarket is a square in Glasgow, Scotland, and is on the site where there used to be a salt market, hence its name. As Glasgow is a coastal city on the North Sea salt was sold from here to the rest of the UK. Saltmarket is reached by the Trongate, or London Road, when leaving the highway to the city center coming from London or Edinburgh. Today there's a beautiful tower in Saltmarket Square with a clock that's a little reminiscent of Big Ben in London, though smaller. Above all, there's so much traffic and for pedestrians it's a nightmare, you never know where to cross, it's a pain. Before there was a tram, but now there are only cars.
