Day Tour Glasgow

Sunday, June 08, 2008

This evening I am presenting some images taken during today's tour of Glasgow for a group of visitors from Singapore.

Here are some images taken at Charles Rennie Mackintosh's House for an Art Lover in Bellahouston Park. It took almost 100 years from the time Mackintosh and his wife designed the building to the date of final construction, but it was worth the wait! A stunning and unique interior comprising main hall, dining room, music room and oval room.

Here are some Highland Cattle which live in the unusual setting of Glasgow's Pollock Park. They are quite docile and very photogenic, albeit far removed from their natural habitat of the mountains and hills.

Here are some images of the famous Burrell Collection , which contains some 8500 art treasures collected by William Burrell (1861-1958) and donated to the City of Glasgow in 1944. The collection covers a vast span of time from ancient Egypt through to the medieval.

This is the Ubiquitous Chip in Ashton Lane where the group enjoyed a good meal. An award winning restaurant and the city;s favourite for 'Mctastic' Scottish food, especially venison and seafood.

Exterior of Kelvingrove Art Gallery. Inside is one of the most famous municipal collections of Scottish and European paintings in the country.

Here are some images form a tour of the Auchentoshan Whisky Distillery

Guide giving introductory presentation.

Copper stills

Maturation in process. About 2pct p.a. is lost due to evaporation and is known as the 'Angels Share'.
Overall, a good tour which was aided by reasonably clement weather.
