Loch Lomond to Glasgow to Linlithgow – The Scottish Adventure Continues

Filed in Gather Travel Essential by on September 4, 2008 0 Comments

The next leg of our Scottish Adventure started out with an exciting addition! My sister-in-law, Becky D and her son, Stephen, flew into Glasgow airport and joined us for the the remainder of our trip. After a delightful breakfast at the Corries, the B&B where we'd spent the night, we headed into Glasgow to fetch them and see a bit of the city.

 Our first stop was the Willow Tea Room, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The Glasgow Cathedral was next on our list. The stained glass was magnificent!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We headed to the country again to a lovely B&B owned by Bunty Kirk, one of our most colorful hosts. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next day, it was off to Linlithgow to see the ruins of the palace and a few shops in town. I even found a quaint little needlepoint shop!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Linlithgow's real treasure is not its palace, but its church… St. Michaels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The modern crown of thorns atop the bell tower was awesome, although it doesn't show up very well in the photos, and this stained glass window was one of the prettiest I've ever seen.

 

Next stop — Edinburgh!
