Gorgeous Glasgow

Although there is a lot of Scotland further north than Fort William we will not be seeing it on this trip.  We have reached the northernmost point of our travels this time so after our night in Fort William we caught the train south to Glasgow.  We saw the same scenery as we had the day before on the way up and it was drizzling with rain so there are no photos.

Gorgeous is probably not a term that many people use for Glasgow, however, we absolutely loved our time there.

We spent the remainder of our travel day getting settled and doing some domestic chores before a full day of sightseeing the next day.

First stop was the Riverside Museum which is mostly dedicated to transport.

When you see inside, it is no wonder that it won the Museum of the Year award.  Here are a few glimpses.

For a change of scenery we headed across the river and visited this beautiful church which contains numerous medieval stones.
