Glasgow lies 40 miles west of Edinburgh, 221 miles north of Manchester, and 388 miles north of London, at the western end of Scotland's Midland Valley. This valley is a major geological feature some 50 miles wide and 120 miles long, stretching from the Firth of Clyde to the Firths of Forth and Tay, and separating the Highlands from the Southern Uplands.

Glasgow's position has been described as lying in a vast horseshoe-shaped 'howe' or open space, hemmed in on the north, west and south by the plateaux of the Campsie, Kilpatrick, Beith and Renfrewshire Hills. The River Clyde flows through this howe, the only major Scottish river to flow west into the Atlantic Ocean.

The material left behind in the valley by retreating glaciers at the end of the last ice age is the ground surface on which the city is built. The disappearance of the glaciers left a prominent feature of the city's landscape in the form of drumlins, smooth elongated low hills, often with steep sides. There are 180 drumlins in Glasgow, the presence of which is reflected in the suffix 'hill' which appears in many Glasgow place names. Most of Glasgow's drumlins lie to the west of the city centre and the most prominent include Garngad Hill (252ft), Partick Hill (179ft), and Garnet Hill (176ft).
