Blackburn Road, Bathgate, Scotland EH48 2EL
El Cairn Hotel está situado en Bathgate, en el centro de Escocia entre Glasgow y Edimburgo. Es un viaje breve por la autovía M8. El hotel tiene 61 habitaciones en suit que son limpias y cómodas. También hay habitaciones familiares con catres. Hay un restaurante que sirve una comida deliciosa y el desayuno por la mañana es copioso y variado. El Cair alberga eventos corporativos en sus cuartos para funciones disponibles. Las zonas públicas del hotel son espaciosas y relajantes y la atmósfera es agradable. El personal es amable y educado. Lo único malo es que no vi instalaciones para cambiar bebés y acabé teniendo que cambiar a mi niña en el suelo del baño de señoras. Bonito sitio de todos modos.
Blackburn Road, Bathgate, Scotland EH48 2EL
L'hôtel Cairn est situé à Bathgate, au centre de l'Ecosse, entre Glasgow et Edimbourgh. Pas très loin en voiture de l'autoroute M8. L'hôtel lui-même possède 61 chambres avec salle de bain, qui sont propres et confortables. Des chambres familiales sont aussi disponibles, ainsi que des lits pour bébés. Il y a un restaurant sur place, qui propose de très bons plats, et le petit-déjeuner le matin est généreux et varié. Le Cairn accueille des séminaires d'entreprise et des suites spéciales sont disponibles pour organiser des événements. Les parties communes de l'hôtel sont spacieuses et invitent à la détente et l'atmosphère est agréable. Les membres du personnel sont accueillants et polis. Le seul point négatif est que je n'ai pas pu trouver l'équipement nécessaire pour changer mon bébé, et j'ai fini par changer ma fille sur le carrelage des toilettes femmes. Malgré tout un endroit agréable.
9 Newmarket Road, Edinburgh, Scotland EH14 1RJ
I had my first taste of the Corn Exchange last night and I must say I was not impressed.
I was looking forward to the gig for ages, Faith No More one of my faverate bands, who I have not seen for more than a decade. I can now say that althou I was at the gig I have still not seen them for more than a decade. Being just under five foot I am used to the fact that I do not always get a great view but at other venues I usualy manage to see something of the band, it did not matter where a stood I could not see a thing.
The sound quality was not great either.
1 Ardgoil Drive, Glasgow, Scotland G68 9NE
Broadwood Stadium is located beside Broadwood Loch in the Westfield area of Cumbernauld.
It is the home ground of Clyde football club, a Scottish first division team, who relocated here from Glasgow in 1994. The ground has a capacity of just over 8,000 and is all seated in three covered stands.
There does not tend to be very big crowds at the matches and as with most smaller clubs the atmosphere can be a bit muted. The seats afford a good veiw of the action on the park and there is adiquite leg room. Broadwood stadium can get quite chilly at times so I would advise wrapping up warm.
It is easy to get to and has a carpark in which you can leave your car for the small charge of £2 and there is usualy spaces.
The stadium also houses five aside piches which can be used by the public as well as a gym.
I have enjoyed a few games at this great wee stadium.
95 Kerrydale Street, Parkhead, Glasgow, Scotland G40 3RE
Celtic Park is located in Parkhead on the east side of Glasgow. The surrounding area used to be realy run done but is undergoing a major overhall and the new houses in the area make it a lot more pleasant.
The stadium itself seats over 60,000 and is one of the largest in Britian (it did boast the largest capasity for a while). If in the upper tier be prepared for a long climb to get to your seat but it worth it as these seats give the best whole pitch veiw. It was mentioned in a previous review about a post restricting the view. These seats are usualy sold as 'restricted view’ and as such are cheaper.
The stadium also houses a good amount of refreshment stands, merchandise outlets and bookmakers.
In my experience the atmosphere is great, especialy for big games and the feel of the whole stand bouncing after a major victory is something to experiance.
Located in the car park, the Supperstore sells anything you could possably want Celtic wise (licenced that is) and on match days is usualy busy so if possable go when there is not a game on.
A great stadium and one of my favorate places to go.
14 Cow Wynd, Falkirk, Scotland FK1 1PZ
Remnant Kings in Falkirk is situated in Cow Wynd and is easy to get to.
Fabric shops these days seam to be few and far between, even buying a zip can be difficult and although you can buy the things this shop stocks on line I personaly feel like there is no comparison between this and accualy seeing and being able to feel the fabric before you buy.
It is not a very big shop but is well stocked with fabrics and other sewing items such as zips, ribbons, buttons etc.
The prices are reasonable and the staff are friendly, helpfull and approachable.
My first stop when I ever get time to make anything.
Castle Street, Glasgow, Scotland G4 0QZ
Glasgow Cathedral, also known as St Mungo’s or St Kentigern’s Chathedral is a lovely gothic building located north of High Street in suprisingly, Glasgow. The building itself is impressive and rather lovely.
The site is the buirial place of St Mungo ( the patron saint of Glasgow). The cathedral in now in the care of the Church of Scotland although was originaly a Catholic cathedral.
Steeped in history and worth a visit.
50 Cathedral Square, Glasgow, Scotland G4 0UZ
A historical cemetry next to Glasgow Cathedral. It is a big hilly area which rewards the climb to the top with spendid views over the city. The Necropolis is a facinating place rich in history which is popular with visiters from all over the world.
On a personal note, while in the Princess Royal Maternaty hospital after the birth of my eldest daughter, we were lucky enough to be put into a private room with a view of the Necropolis. Not to go into too much detail but I was not in a very good place then. I remember feeding my baby during the night with the curtains open staring at the beautiful, hunting view from the window. I know that to some, including a lot of our visitors thought it stange that I would find this attractive, but to me I found peace and a sence of reality from it.
Well worth a visit
North Street, Glasgow, Scotland G3 7DN
The Mitchell Libaray is a stunning building sporting a distinctive copper dome near Charing Cross in Glasgow.
It is a vast building spaning five floors and housing a huge referance section containing over one million volumes, the largest in Europe. The libaray is also home to specilist collections such as the Glasgow collection which gives in insite into times gone by in the city and the Poor Law arcives which tell many stories, many funny, sad or tradgic. I spent ages going though these.
The library also boasts a cafe so when you need a break there is somewhere to go to recharge your batteries before absorbing more knowledge.
Lovely place, wish I had more time to visit more often.
1 Glencairn Road, Glasgow, Scotland G67 2UQ
Burroughs club is located in the South Carbrain area of Cumbernauld not far from Cumbernauld Train Station.
The club provides a place for members to have a drink with friends and perhaps a game or two of pool or darts in the games room.
It also houses a good sized hall where there is often entertainment as well as the opertunity to hire this hall for functions.
It is relitivly easy to get here with the proximity to the railway station they are well searved by public transport and for those choosing to take the car there is a good sized car park at the club.
The staff offer a friendly welcome and there is a good atmosphere.
Although there is wheelchair access you do have to ask for the gates to be opened by a member of staff as you have to enter by the games room which has an outside fenced area. There is also a disabled toilet although it is a bit tricky to get into as you have to go through a small room to get to it.
