Hello, I am travelling to Scotland next weekend, and am looking for information about the location of the tenement museum, I am interested in social history. There is also an open museum and a transport museum in Partick.
I am hoping to have a day in the city and would be interested in finding a good pub serving local beer and Scottish food (but not touristy). Are any local VTets in the area?
I was walking in busy Sauchiehall Street, yesterday and came across this weirdly-dressed man entertaining passers-by with his novelty act, he was sitting semi-motionless on what appears to be thin air!
He certainly attracted a lot of attention, many people were filming him on mobile phones, and his cash box contained a tidy pile of coins, I flicked in a £1 coin recognising his ingenuity, at least he was doing something clever to make some money, unlike the usual beggars, squatting on the pavement, clutching an outstretched plastic cup.....
Has anyone seen this act before, it's a new one on me, how does he do it?.....................Benny.
how far and what is the cost of a taxi to ayr travel lodge , thanx
I will visit Scotland June 11 - 25 and would like to fly from Glasgow to Stornoway during the week of June 18 - 22 2013. I see that if you buy tickets online they are nonrefundable, so it would be better to purchase them once I am in the UK, but wondered how filled up they get during that time. Also if any refundable tickets are available. I checked their trip insurance and it seems that there are too many exceptions that would make it useless.
We are off to 3 night stay in a lodge at Cameron House Hotel next month and would appreciate any hidden gems that we can either walk or drive to. Proposed so far for our party (granny & grandad, mrs, me & the kids - 3&1): Walk to Lomond Shores/take a cruise with Sweeney's Fireworks on the 5th Drive over to Helensburgh/Faslane for old times sake
Hi everyone. I am thinking of going to Glasgow in mid-January for two weeks. I have a few questions, though... before I get into that, I just want to note that I have been to Glasgow before, but only in the warmer months. Now on with the questions... 1. How cold can I expect it to be? I am from New York where the winters can be quite cold, snowy, and icy, so I doubt it'll be much cooler than here, but I don't want to be shocked. But... is it going to be too cold for me to walk around? 2. Because it gets darker there so early in the winter... will it be safe for me, a solo female traveler, to be walking around Glasgow's city center after dark? 3. Will there be attractions open? 4. What places do you recommend? What are must-sees?? What things are worth checking out? I'll have two weeks, so I'm hoping there's enough to entertain myself with in winter. I have no problem taking day trips out of Glasgow, but I don't quite understand the public transport there, so nothing too complex, please.
Hello, Is it possible to get to the Thistle Hotel from the Glasgow airport by public transportation or would a taxi be our best bet. There will only be two adults and we each have only one rolling bag. Thank you for your help.
I am traveling with my four children, ages 21-14, to Scotland. We want to visit the Duart Castle but wasn't sure whether it was worth taking our rental car to the Isle so we could travel around. Or, just book the package which includes ferry passage, coach and entrance to the castle. Are there beaches near the castle to walk to? Suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
Can anyone tell me which bus company covers the Campbelltown to Glasgow route.
Are any of the various pubs, cafes or restaurants in Tobermory non-smoking? Or at the very least have a non-smoking area that is sufficiently distant from the smoking crowd so that one does not inhale second hand smoke? Robert
I am arriving in May on a cruise to Glasgow for the day only. We have a few different excursions to pick from. What would be best to see....stay in Glasgow for the day or travel to Loch Lommond and Inveraray Castle? So much to do...so little time.
We have been told by our travel agent that rental car companies will not allow their cars to take the ferry to the Isle of Mull. Does anyone have experience with this issue?
Hi everyone! I'm taking my wife up to Glasgow in March. It's her 50th! We're staying at the Hotel du Vin and eating there on the Friday. We need to find somewhere to eat with the extended family on the Saturday. There could be just 8 people or there may be 20! I suggested an Indian restaurant. Ideas? My sister-in-law suggested the Art Lovers House but that's a bit of a tradition with my wife's family. The 'Chip? Too expensive for most! Any other ideas in or around Glasgow? Thanks.
Hi everyone My wife's 50th is coming up in March and I'm treating her to a couple of nights in the Hotel du Vin, Glasgow. One of the 'special' experiences that I'm looking into are the seaplane flights from Glasgow to the lochs with dinner at the end of it before being driven home. Can you recommend a company? Is there another 'wow' experience that you would recommend?
I am thinking of a day trip (from Edinburgh) to Glasgow and was not sure what station is best to get off at --Glasgow Central or Queen Street. Also is it worth going to Glasgow for just a day or should we think more about taking a one day bus tour from Edinburgh to the "Loch" areas. Thanks for advice. Losham
Does the ferry terminal have a place to store bags? Is there anything to do within a very short walk from the terminal area - food, shops? I've checked the Oban travel guide and there's nothing on this.
I will be Holidaying in a cottage on Loch Fyne in September,can anyone tell me of any attractions or places to eat in Inverary that dogs will be allowed. Tricia and friends.
Does anyone have information about travel from Glasgow to Dublin. We prefer the train but bus might be okay> Thanks
What is the cheapest transportation from Glasgow to Lake District for a day trip, to stay one day at Lake District and going back to Glasgow at night??

I will be visiting London from 1 to 10 of Sep 2010, then, visiting Glasgow from 10-15 of Sep, with my kids (girl 9y, boy 7y) What the best attractions and entertainments for kids and what the best things to do for Kids in London and Glasgow for that time?? Any creative suggestions??:)
Hi, My parents, who are in their 60's, are travelling to Scotland this October. While my father takes a trip to Barra, my mother is going to stay on her own for a couple of days in Glasgow. I'm helping her plan the trip and would like a suggestion for a nice safe neighborhood within a very short walking distance (she doesn't walk a lot) to a few shops/grocery store. It's also a bonus if it's easily accessible by the airport bus (i.e. on the route). Thanks in advance!
Hello, we are travelling on a budget but we would still like to go out and have some drinks in Glasgow. Does anybody know about good happy hours or places with very good value? Maybe a place where students meet with good music and cheap beer... I tried to search myself but did not get good results. There seems to be a driving school named "happy hour" which makes the search difficult... Maybe someone knows from own experience. Thank you and greetings!
Does the RBS still print the 1 pound paper notes? thanks
I will have a Sunday to visit Glasgow soon, and thought about going to see the William Wallace's well and monument in Robroyston. What bus gan get me there from Glasgow city center?
I know this sounds a silly thing to ask but you can walk from Springfield Quay to the SECC, over the bridge, on foot can't you? I know you can cycle over the bridge from looking at google maps but can't tell if there is pavement all the way over too.
Is there a place in Glasgow that offers dinner theater such as Knights of the Round Table or the like. Thanks
what is best way to travel to the mccchurch on sunday mornings from the exhibition centre hotels. can one walk it
