A Train Ride to Glasgow


Hello Everyone,
I would like you to meet 'The Three Ladies Go Traveling'. We are on our way from London to Glasgow on Virgin Atlantic Train riding First Class.  Remember I mentioned the table with a lamp on it.  Oh my gosh.  It was a wonderful 51/2 hour train ride.  We had a morning snack, then lunch and afternoon tea. 
And when we arrived at Glasgow Central Train Station I was in awe of how different Scotland is from England. I fell in love with Scotland instantly!!!!

A gift to myself....


What a beautiful station. 


This is our room at the Glasgow Marriott Hotel. 
WE THOUGHT WE HAD DIED AND WENT TO HEAVEN!!!!
 Do you remember the Hostel beds? 
This hotel was
 ******FABULOUS*****
After having a cup of tea we started out to see the sights. 
Only one evening in Glasgow is not enough, but we did have a grand time.


As I walked down Argyle Street from the hotel  to 'Buchanan Street' and 'The Style Mile' I admired the  beautiful architecture of the city. I Think it's Late Victorian.


I saw some interesting things!


How about this?  I think they're Scottish!! They're in Scotland.


Very Interesting!


As I looked up the street with all the high end shops I saw the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall in the distance.

Statue of 'Donald Dewar'


This photo is looking down the street.  Yes, I did climb this hill!!!
 And many more just like this one before the trip was over.  


The next morning I had a traditional Scottish breakfast.
Broiled tomato, mushrooms, basted egg, potatoes, haggis and blood sausage.
(Haggis and blood sausage) First time and Only time.


After breakfast we joined the rest of the tour group and departed  from Glasgow around 7:30a.m. to take the coach to Oban, Scotland.

  1. How fun. Sounds like a wonderful adventure. I've never had Haggis and blood sausage before and was going to ask you how they tasted. But since you said "First time and Only time"...never mind. I think I got the idea! LOL...hey, but at least you get to try them! :) Take care and thanks for sharing these gorgeous photos.
