Alicante is lovely. Most people pass through on the way to Benidorm but it is a city worth investigating in it's own worth.
Rome, Madrid, Budapest.
Marrakech. Not a lot further than Alicante, actually.
Barcelona, Rome? Southern Europeans like kids, which always helps.
Copenhagen perhaps, or what about Vienna ?

We will always have Paris !
You might find it useful to know where you can get direct flights to from Glasgow.

Here's a map:

There's a destination map for Prestwick Airport here:

Barcelona would be my choice:

It certainly meets your requirement for being near to an airport, as Barcelona Airport has its own rail station, which is just 27 minutes away from the central Passeig de Gràcia station. Within the city itself, there's a good, cheap and fully-integrated public transport system.

Barcelona is packed with excellent restaurants and bars, with loads to see and do. It's especially good for kids:

I wouldn't go to Barcelona if I were you. I know a number of people who have been mugged there.
