    To Glasgow

    A travel blog entry by spiderbobwebb on Oct 24, 2014

    On Friday morning I did a few things to organise myself before getting on the train to Glasgow. In Glasgow I was collected at the station by Jim McCusker who took me back to their place before dinner. We had dinner at a curry place in Acton Lane where there were Haggis pakoras. After dinner we had drinks an Irish pub in Acton Lane and then walked to a bar in a church. At about 1:30 we went home, only after battling to open the door of our ...

    ... restaurant. Nanny was excited as there is a health food shop three doors down. We weren't sure what we were supposed to do so we buzzed the apartment number she had given us. She let us in and oh, oh we had to walk up three flights of narrow stairs, I counted them and there are 60 steps. Poor Grandy carried the suitcases up.

It’s more like a fortress of stone walls with a cobblestone pathway on a steady incline as it wraps around like a nautilus to the very top, where there are gorgeous panoramic views of the city and you could see all the hikers on Arthur’s Seat across the valley. Edinburgh is a very hilly city and ...

    "Art is the flower. Life is the green leaf. Let every artist strive to make his flower a beautiful living thing, something that will convince the world that there may be, there are, things more precious more beautiful - more lasting than life itself" - Charles Rennie Mackintosh

    The importance of art to society cannot be overstated. Art is literally the colour that brightens up what would otherwise be a blank and sad canvas. If I had to pick a theme for my last day in Glasgow it ...

    From Motherwell to Lanark and back

    ... at an early age. The parents had gone before him; Agnes the mother at the age of 65 in 1893 and William the father at 78 in 1900. Through almost all the letters the mother is unwell and I thought she must have been quite old, but that was not the case.

    A second Merrilees family lived at Erskinebank very near to Trotterbank, but they were not brothers unless the father married twice, which could be quite possible given the early deaths in childbirth around the 1820s. I ...
