From Isle of Skye to Glasgow

A travel blog entry by jimcolsimpson

Very informative tour of the Isle of Skye this is where Bonnie Prince Charlie dressed up in Flora McDonald's maids clothes to avoid detection from those murderous english loons who were after his head [i think] on our way to Glasgow we were advised that there were plenty of attractions on offer most of which we were told to avoid. Dumbarton had the …

... I have ever eaten in my life, the restaurant itself was an exciting experience as you got to watch the chef cook your food right in front of you. The chefs were entertainers as well - jugging knives, creative massive fireballs on the stoves and flicking food into the open mouths of patrons. It was a lovely last dinner in Glasgow!

In the morning we got on the train and made our way homeward to Durham. But that, my dear readers, is a story for another day.

The Tree That Never Grew

... watered by the local canine population - providing for some interesting contrast. Resisting the temptation to sit down and write dark and angsty poetry, I made my way to the Glasgow Cathedral, arriving just as it opened at 9:30am. Since I was the first tourist to slip in, I had the weird sensation of being alone in a giant cathedral: much creepier than it sounds. The Cathedral is built on the burial ground of St. Mungo. Those of you that, like me, thought that St. Mungo's was a name made ...

Exhibition Installation - Glasgow Science Centre

... fluid (magnetorheological fluid). It had two large electromagnets poking through the fluid, and cut with spiral screw threads, so when the coils are energised, the fluid climbs up the spirals and then sticks out little spokes. It is a wonderful display to watch, and we all spent time videoing it in operation.

By about 3:00pm everything was ready, and we took our damaged millimetre wave device and some spare ferro-fluid displays and drove back to St Andrews.

It had stopped ...

BEING A TOURIST IN GLASGOW

... Bay Tree! After breakfast we caught the subway to the Transport Museum which we thoroughly enjoyed. Doug particularly liked seeing a Lagonda car and loved seeing the many ships and cars. There were whole walls of things like cars, motorbikes, trains, prams etc. The early subway was reconstructed in two places and there were huge locomotives on display. The whole Museum was excellent. Moored on the dock was a tall ship which we all clambered over. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Glasgow

    Rude service - if any

    from

    Arriving at the quay very early for a voyage on the Waverley paddle-steamer down the Clyde and along the Ayrshire Coast, I decided to cross the pedestrian bridge for a cup of coffee at the Moat House Hotel. The woman at the first lobby breakfast area I encountered informed me very brusquely that her area was reserved for a private party. At the next breakfast area, I was told that there was seating for breakfast only. Nor would the reception desk suggest a way in which I might get a simple cup of coffee. I was made to feel homeless. Perhaps my American accent led folks to mistake me for GW Bush, 'tho I don't look like him, I wasn't wearing dungarees with a big belt buckle and I did not vote for him.

    Crisps and tissues under the bed and chairs

    from

    I stayed in a corner suite 10 days ago. The room was not properly cleaned. There were crisps under the bed (I stood on them as I was getting into bed). The bathtub did not empty properly and the shower was broken. There were tissues under an armchair. Room service was 30 minutes late and there was a smell of cigarette smoke throughout the room and corridor. I checked out the next morning and spent the rest of my stay at the Radisson (which was very good).

    Perfect weekend!

    from

    Had a great weekend at this hotel. Myself & my two children booked a family room, deal included tickets to Science Centre, The Tall Ship & two days travel on the Glasgow Tour buses. There were not enough hours in the day to get everything done!!

    Expected better

    from

    The hotel reception, facilities, breakfast and staff were excellent. The room was terrible, with shabby furnishings and holed bed sheets. It was small dark and looked extremely dated! Got the room really cheap compared to the normal rate, but was not told to expect lowered standards because of this. I would not go back to this hotel.

    Glasgow moat house

    from

    Had booked this Hotel because of its proximity to the SECC. This was the hotels only redeeming factor. Rooms were dark and dingy. staff were unhelpful. I actually was so dissapointed with my room that I infact checked out immediately and moved to another hotel.

    I was sadly dissapointed with this hotel, perhaps next time

    Great Room

    from

    Cant say anything about the food here because I didnt eat anything but the room was terrific and very very comfortable. Not exactly the handiest part of town to be in but there seemed to be a steady stream of taxis (about 2 or 3 minutes into the centre). Staff were great too.

    Stunning

    from

    I thought It was stunning I'd love to go back. Everything was simply stunning.

    Not a function Hotel

    from

    Attended Function - Service Poor, food average, Hotel with protential, great location

    Great 1 night stay

    from

    We only stayed for 1 night and went to the westlife concert, but that one night stay was the best. As soon as we left all i wanted to do was go back to the hotel. Some of the best features of the hotel had to be the 'panoramic lift' which has a glass wall so you can see out to the city of Glasgow, It had a walkway from the hotel to the S.E.C.C. which we found was very safe and easy for young(ish) children to use themselves, also the rooms were of great cleanliness and the hotel was set it a GREAT place in Glasgow.

    P.S. Westlife were GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Better outside than outside

    from

    The moat house hotel is nicely located on the Clyde river just in opposite the the Science centrer and just beside the congress center.

    It is very quite and nice looking from the outside. The restaurant is serving good food on a buffet. The rooms are quite large. The windows can not be opened and are as much dirty inside than outside, so don't think about taking a picture from the window. Also, the window frame is very dirty and sticky. The bathroom is just is okay, expected some hair on the floor. Beds are nice and large and ferm.
