CHARLES RENNEE MACINTOSH
One of Glasgows most famous sons was Charles Renee Macintosh, an architect and designer who had a very distinctive style and his mark can be seen on many buildings around the city, including the Lighthouse Gallery & his influence is all over the Willow Tearooms as well. He didn't just design buildings though, he also designed a lot of furniture and did art work.
Nowadays you can get his designs on anything from crockery, to bedding to jewellery. Personally I love Renee Macintosh style stuff :)
Anything will do as long as its waterproof. Always take raingear or an umbrella or both. You would be a lucky person to go to Glasgow and not see rain.In the summer the weather doesnt get very hot.65-75 (if your lucky). In winter it doesnt go below freezing very often and if it does then its by a few degrees. Nothing drastic. Just take the usual but most of your favourite brands will be available. One of the biggest pharmacy chains is 'Boots' what it doesnt have you probably wont want. If you want to recharge batteries etc take a travel plug. The UK works with 240volts and three pin plugs. Travell plugs for anything electrical you may ahve
Try going further north and...
Try going further north and into Argyle and Bute. The countryside is beautiful and there is lots to see. The most famous area is probably Loch Lommond. The village of Luss is on the banks of the Loch and is well worth a visit.
Lochgoilhead slightly north of Loch Lommond is a village in the hills and is well worth a visit.
Lochgoilhead is really only accessable by car, the road to the village is a single track road but it is well worth making the effort.
The village itself is everything you would expect from a Scottish village. It is extremely quiet and beautiful. If you wish to stay there then the Roadhouse Hotel is right on the Loch and is a nice place to stay. The best thing to do in Lochgoilhead is to take a walk around the loch and soak in the tranquility of this area of Scotland.
I would recommend you keep travelling North after Lochgoilhead. Why not visit Inerarry and Oban. Both are beautiful towns.
These fotos do not really do it justice but the atmosphere is great ,the design is great and the pub is great even as A PUB.
THe your sound sunday afternoons is an adventure no musician wants to miss.
