  • Ayrshire

    Glasgow Off The Beaten Path

    On the West Coast of Scotland about five miles south of Ayr and beautifully perched on a craggy cliff top knoll stands the ruins of Dunure Castle. It was originally built for the Kennedy family. The site is actually only the shell of a late 13th century oblong keep on the main knoll with the very fragmented remains of two additional wings. These...

  • Stirling...

    Glasgow Off The Beaten Path

    Stirling- one of Scotlands former capitals, is one of its most historic cities as well, with a lot of tales of battles and struggles for Scottish independence centred around the region. Its was also home to the famous William `braveheart' Wallace and `Robert the Bruce'. The Stirling castle is one of the most evocative castles i`ve seen to...

  • Gretna Green

    Glasgow Off The Beaten Path

    Gretna Green was our first stop on the way up to Kilmarnock to get to our house and we stopped there for lunch. Although the Blacksmiths shop is very much a tourist trap I think (you pay 80 pence to see the anvil where so many people have been married) it does have some charm. This is especially so when you arrive (as we did) just as a couple has...

  • Linlithgow

    Glasgow Off The Beaten Path

    This is a really beautiful ruin of a royal palace which is set in its own park on the shore of Linlithgow loch and it is one of the countries most visited ruins. Most of the ruins are buildings commissioned by James V although some sections date from the 14th century. The fountain in the courtyard is being restored and it was a wedding present from...

  • Blackness Castle

    Glasgow Off The Beaten Path

    This was built in the 14h century and then strengthened as an artillery fortress in the 16th century. In the 1870s it became an ammunition depot before being restored in the 1920s. It was used as the setting for the film Ivanhoe. I love the views over the Firth of Forth - and it has family memories also as my aunt made the cake that was cut at the...

    One thing , since it was a weekday and we were there alone.. There is a gentlemen at Glasgow zoo who comes there with his own Bird off prey. He normally gives a show. Not my kind of thing.

    This is a fortified residence from the 13th century, which was extended in the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries. It has splendid living areas and a terraced garden with bowling green. There is also a circular dovecot. The garden is really beautiful, and do take time to visit the church which is reached by walking through the garden. There is some...

  • Cairnpapple Hill

    Glasgow Off The Beaten Path

    Visit Cairnpapple Hill On a clear day you have beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The holes you can see in the photo would have had thick wooden poles in them making up part of the roofing. It was used as a burial ground and a ceremonial site from about 3000 to 1400 BC. It is a bit clausophobic inside - but worth going down into the...

  • Argyle/Further north

    Glasgow Off The Beaten Path

    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...
