To many, the results seemed unlikely given its fun loving and friendly ways.
The survey asked Scots to rate their life on a scale of zero to 10, with Scots as a whole giving an average score of 6.18.
But in Glasgow residents were the least happy with a mean score of just 5.69, according to the first Scottish Wellbeing Index poll.
Meanwhile, Lothian came out as the happiest area of Scotland, with a score of 6.37.
Mark Diffley, founder and director of the Diffley Partnership, which launched the survey with Charlotte Street Partners, said: "This inaugural report highlights significant differences in how different parts of society are feeling, with wellbeing driven by issues such as age, employment status, and where you live."
Glaswegians, as you would well imagine, had a thing or two to say about the findings.
