We spent the first night of our trip through Scotland here. It's very clean, the staff helpful and friendly and our room nice. It's an easy walk from the train station even with luggage.

Yesterday was a lovely Sabbath day. The Sabbath service in Stirling was scheduled for 1pm, so I had plenty of time to get ready,and thankfully, it didn't stop my sister from sleeping in a little, as she likes to do on weekends. I slept in, too, and still had time for a little Bible Study and leisurely breakfast then a bath, since the shower doesn't operate.

We had the luxury of staying at the Ramada Glasgow Airport Hotel which was just about 1/2 a mile from the ...
... poking my head out of the circular wooden window to see what the sheep were doing. I reflected on the sheer size and quantity of mountains and concluded that I had rarely seen anything quite as beautiful. I told myself that someday I would be back here to this very cabin with my partner, who was sorely missing from this magical scene.
Yet again, I needed to leave a place that had rapidly become close to my heart, and I bid Les farewell the next morning and drove onwards. ...
Another breakfast at the hotel and a long chat with the Australian manager. After checking out our first stop was a large model shop on the way into town. I had noticed a cute store further down the street so I headed there. However, the paving further down the road, outside the concert hall, was very icy so I headed back to the model shop! We had our morning cup of tea at the film house opposite the model shop. Ian noted that the cinema cafe had 17 beers on tap. As we walked down ...
