A trip to… Glasgow

Generally the response I got when I told people where I was going for a few days break from work was “Why?”. So I will admit I was a little unsure when Miss C and I set off on the 5 hour drive to Glasgow on what to expect when we got there. I need not have worried as I honestly had a great time with plenty to keep us occupied for the four days we were there.

The Kelvingrove art gallery and museum was a good place to while away an afternoon with lots to see and the Huntarian museum at the university – whilst much smaller – was still worth a look. And both are free as well.

I am not one for big nights out but there was plenty to satisfy my more modest tastes. Italian restaurants seem most popular but every other taste is catered for as well. Bath street seems to have most bars, hidden down below street level and we had some very interesting cocktails in the Pony (a Fennel Destination for me). The place that made me grin most though was Arta. There seemed to be a constant stream of hen parties arriving/leaving, whilst very loud classical music blared out of the sound system. The decor meant I’d have not looked out of place relaxing on a chaise lounge with someone feeding me grapes!

If you’ve never been, don’t be put off by what people might say and give it a try.
