Jim and I were in Scotland in 2008 and really did enjoy our time there. Absolutely loved Edinburgh!
The last time we were in Edinburgh, this time Glasgow, with trips out of the city to see other areas of Scotland, so we will spend one day seeing Glasgow.
The following are all in Glasgow
The Rotundra, a really good restaurant
Trip on Glasgow HOHO bus. Best HOHO yet!
This building and the similar looking building at the beginning were used as storage in the 1800’s as they moved goods back and forth across the river in a tunnel built under the river. It doesn’t appear that this one is currently being used, but the one at the beginning has been turned into a very successful restaurant, The Rotundra.
Glasgow is a very beautiful and bustling city with a number of universities, many beautiful churches, and a busy city center. George Square downtown has many statues and churches along with a park area.
Love the architecture and the people in Scotland.
Next will be our travel in Scotland outside of the city.
I had booked a tour with Discover Scotland Tours It was somewhere between a 9-10 hour tour. For seniors it was 38 pounds each, fantastic!
We toured the Western Highlands, either 5 or 6 lochs of various sizes, saw several castles, the town of Glencoe and the town of Oban. Following are my photos taken as we traveled along. I love Scotland so there are a lot of pictures.
Mirror lake effect
We stopped here for a coffee/cocoa break
And to end this journey in Scotland is Drovers Inn in Loch Lomond.
THE DROVERS INN ACCOMMODATION LOCH LOMOND, TRADITIONAL SCOTTISH FOOD, LIVE MUSIC
Located at the top end of the beautiful Loch Lomond on the A82 to Crianlarich is the historic Drovers Inn. From the moment you pull up outside and then enter the Drovers Inn you just know that you are experiencing something truly unique. You can simply sense three centuries of Scottish hospitality. Within, you can truly feel the history of the people who have passed through; the ghosts are in the walls, generations of tales in the air.
The Drovers Inn is an old inn used by the Highland drovers who used to drive their cattle down the side of Loch Lomond to the markets. The decor and furniture, in deference to the past, look as though they have not been changed or altered for a couple of hundred years. As you enter the reception hall you are faced by a full grown, stuffed grizzly bear, an assortment of other animals and the assured feeling that this place is going to stay in your consciousness for a long time to come, for all the right reasons.
