Glasgow, Scotland

Sat 26 Oct 2019


We drove to Glasgow from Inverness today, stopping by at Cairngorm mountains for a short hike. We reached Glasgow at 4pm and checked in our hotel at Ibis Budget Glasgow. Our room was very small and compact  with only enough space for 2 people to move around. There is no in room coffee or tea facilities, but they are available at the check in counter. Car park is free.

From our hotel, we walked to George Square for about 20 mins, crossing the river Clyde via a pedestrian Tradeston bridge.

We went straight to the shops to do some last minute souvenir shopping before closing time at 7pm. After shopping, we went for dinner of Fish and Chips with tea (Supper GBP 8.50) and Margarita pizza (9 inch GBP 7.20).

It was already dark by the time we finished our dinner. We then walked back to our hotel to pack our luggage as we would be leaving Scotland the next day at 1pm.

Today we would be making our way back to Kuala Lumpur. We drove from our hotel to the airport and passed by the Scottish Rangers F.C. football stadium. We didn't stop or enter the stadium grounds as we had a flight to catch. When we arrived at the airport, we saw a Rangers F.C. store. We didn't buy anything here though, only looked at their official merchandise.

Goodbye Scotland, particularly the Scottish Highlands for the majestic views of lakes and mountains, certainly a haven for nature lovers. We had such a wonderful time admiring the beautiful scenery. We hope we will be back here.
