Off to Glasgow

Today we are off to Glasgow for our last stop on our wonderful tour throughout Scotland. We started our morning at Kilmartin Glen to view the most important concentration of Neolithic and Bronze Age remains in mainland Scotland. The setting was beautiful as we walked through a pasture area to view the remains of the Nether Largie cairns, the Nether Largie Standing Stones and the Templewood Stone Circles. Some of these remains date back five thousand years.

Once back on the road and enjoying our scenic drive we stopped in Inveraray for our morning coffee. Then it was back in the car heading towards Glasgow passing Loch Lomond, an area designated as a National Park for its epic splendour. Unfortunately, as we drove through it was overcast and raining lightly. Loch Lomond is also considered the boundary between the lowlands of Central Scotland and Highlands.

Once in Glasgow we settled into the apartment where we’ll spend our last two nights in Scotland. After a nice dinner out we walked around the city centre of Glasgow and took in some of its beautiful 19th-century Victorian architecture and wall art.

The Duke of Wellington statue in all his glory, cone and all — a true testament to the incorrigible Glaswegian sense of humour.
