If you're as big as a Glaswegian Maccie's fan like us you'll know it to be the 24-hour McDonald's in Finnieston - popular post-concert with fans emerging from the Hydro.

An AI generated voice on her TikTok tells the tale while she drives: "I found a strange McDonald's drive-thru that's hidden under a building in Glasgow.

"I needed energy for the drive home so I ordered McDonald's from the nearest location in the app that said it had drive-thru and added it as a waypoint. I was so confused when I arrived here.

"You'll see a McDonald's building sticking out the side of a huge building but supposedly no drive-thru... or so I thought!

"There's not even the big M sign! I barely recognised there was a McDonald's there.

"I assumed it was an app glitch and there was no drive thru but wait!

"It threw me I had to drive on the right - it goes against common sense to not keep left."
