In Glasgow, Scotland, the traditional red light districts are The Drag in Anderston around Blythswood Square, Glasgow Green and Collegelands. People seeking the services of a prostitute travel to these areas of the city, where women wait for customers on the street or in brothels.

According to the Evening Times, the police beat where the most people were arrested offering sex for sale in 2011 was the Calton Barras area, in which part of Glasgow Green is situated. The Broomielaw West beat, which contains most of the Anderston Drag, had the second highest number of cases. The third most active area for prostitution was Collegelands.
