... to mention, while you're on your back to get through this hole, you have to turn your head to the right, otherwise you wouldn't be able to fit through. That's how small we're talking. Wow... so as some of the brave were attempting this challenge, I was unsure if I wanted to go back out the way we came in or attempt it. Well this one guy went down a couple before me and basically freaked out and thought he was stuck in the hole part and couldn't move. Yeah, that was great... right ...
... the sheer longing I felt for the wide array of said suits. Unfortunately, they are quite bulky, and this would have taken up the entirety of my carry-on suitcase. (Curse you, Ryanair!)
I think we actually did end up spending quite a lot of time in there, because it was slightly after dinnertime by the time we got back. Lesley's parents had gone to visit Fiona, who had broken her ankle in a very serious-sounding manner. I did meet Lesley's two brothers, Stuart and Gordon, ...
... everything- sunny periods, with clouds and some showers, heavy at times and cooler. Over all, not bad.
The group is getting much more comfortable with everyone. The practical joking has started and the time on the coach does go by relatively quick.
We had the standard stops- morning coffee/bio break, lunch and afternoon coffee/bio, a few of us even had a whiskey! No telling ...
... so that was just great. It wasn't the best bus tour we'd done but we did get to see a lot of the city. It's pretty but not as scenic as Edinburgh in my opinion.
And with that we said farewell to the olds and got back on our train to Edinburgh. Mum and Dad went on and had 'one of the best nights' bar hopping in little old Prestwick. You can imagine it.
... interesting (part of the reason I am so far behind on this blog) so i didn't want to put it down.
After Bracken finished, Bracken, Gavin, Zoe (one of Bracken's classmates, and who also taught the 'summer school' class) and I went and had desert and drinks at Cafe Neiro. While there, It was decided that we would all go over to Zoe and Gavin's (when he doesn't stay at Bracken's) place for supper.
On the walk over there, we stoped to pick up some things ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Belhaven Hotel Glasgow
Definately not Rude
On my return home I wrote a brief review about the Belhaven, thought I would just check how it looks on line and am appaled at the review I have just read about rude management.
I witnessed the conversation with the young lady and the staff ,although I admit the conversation did get heated, the hotel staff did their best with a woman who did want to pay for an error she had made requesting accommodation on line. I note she is a single lady traveller, I too travel alone often and find it a comfort that confirming a reservation with a credit card number ensures that I have a room at the hotel booked.
The management in the Belhaven are hands on and obviously take great pride in their service, staff and property.
A fabulous hotel that I highly recomend.
No complaints with the facilities but found the management to be extremely rude, offensive and completely unreasonable. Following some confusion regarding non-arrival/cancellation policy I was assured by a member of junior staff that the issue would be resolved to my satisfaction.
Comfortable, warm and welcoming hotel. Excellent cooked breakfast. The hotel is in a beautiful part of Glasgow, opposite the Botanical Gardens and round the corner from the stylish Byres Rd and a short walk from the underground station. Would definately stay here again.
Worth every pound
a quick search through the internet and I found it, 'The Belhaven Hotel'. As their web pages suggest it is warm, welcoming, peaceful and above all very comfortable. For a quickly organised weekend break we did well! .The hotel was well maintained with plenty of hot water and fresh towels avialable, just off Byres Rd with some wonderful bars and restaurants, unusual little shops in Ashton lane and direct bus or underground to get you into the fab shops and nightlife of the city.
I'll be returning to Glasgow for a repeat visit, here's hoping I get a room at The Belhaven Hotel again.
I loved the place
I have just returned home from a wonderful stay in the West End Of Glasgow which I was to discover is a truly beautiful part of this trendy city. Anyways I was lucky enough to find accomodation at the Belhaven Hotel which I really enjoyed. The room was large, clean and very comfortable and the breakfast amazing. Most of the evenings I kicked off or ended my evening in the warm inyimate and very friendly lounge bar where I met the most interesting of people. the owners and staff are all as charming as one can be. I left feeling like I had been on retreat for a week:full of energy and enthusiasm for life and ready to plan my next vacation.
My wife and I stayed here from 17-19 January 2003 and found it to be perfect. It is obvious that it was a somewhat quick renovation but that does not take away from the entire experience. We were in Room #14 which faces the back so it was nice and quiet. The carpets and their installation left something to be desired as did the bathroom size but overall, for the price and location, I would stay here again and again when in Glasgow.
My partner and I stayed at the Belhaven Hotel during the half term in October, with a view to having a peaceful and "getting to know each other, again" time.
During my trip to Glasgow I was accommodated in The Belhaven Hotel. The hotel has a wonderful location in the West End very close to Ashton Lane where a wonderful selection of individual pubs and restaurants offer superb food and service.
The hotel is well managed and the staff very courteous, always willing to have a chat and offer advice. My room was great value for money, £40.00 per night including a mighty Scottish Breakfast..........with no grease!!
The staff looked after me very well and made my 5 days away from home very enjoyable.
I will return.
On a recent visit to Glasgow I stayed at the Belhaven Hotel, right in the heart of the west end during a wonderful festival period.
The owners were ever so helpful as were the staff, always willing to help and offer advice on what to do in Glasgow.
The room was comfortable and spacious offering my wife and I the ability to relax in comfortable surroundings.
Breakfast was served till 9.00am weekdays and 9.30 weekends so we were able to have a full day travelling.
The room itself had a wonderful kingsize bed and two person jaccuzzi, lashings of hot water and well apointed.
Ask for room 11 if you intend to stay at the Belhaven.
