120 seems to be pretty dear to develop, they seem cheapest. which is what i meant by 'decent' i suppose!

B&S labs or MNS photocolour (Finnieston area) will do it but, yes, it won't be cheap as they're charging 'professional' rates...
Something that pushed me to digital stuff - the way you knew you'd a good photo and find that the mass-market lab ruined the film by wrong developing or scratching. The likes of B&S will get you a terrific print from a film but yes, you do get what you pay for.

You could try Locksleys in the industrial estate near Round Toll, off Garscube Road. I'm sure their number will be in the phone book. They are very helpful and turn out an excellent product.

What about that little old camera shop in Parnie St, they might be able to guide you somewhere.

is the place off Garscube Road.
http://www.quiggs.co.uk/ is the place in Parnie Street.

Phone numbers on both sites.

And, if you don't mind mail order, this lot have a good reputation in the photography forums

I go to Snappy Snaps on Byres Road, they can do it on the premises (when the machine isnae broken!)

Am pretty sure I've put film in at lunchtime, and picked it back up after work at 5pm.

Cannae complain about the quality really, as I am an absolute disaster as a 120 photographer, ::):
