I get confused between this construction and "there is another bus in Glasgow". Anybody have tips in how to tell the difference quickly? Is it just the definite article that distinguishes them?

I think you're right. Couldn't say "the another bus". I guess "another bus" would be "Tha bus eile". (but I'm just a learner like you so you might want to wait for real answers.) : )

I misheard "eile" and wrote "Ìle" but this was accepted without correction.

You ought to be writing in English, unless you're doing a listening exercise.
