The Terrace House Hotel
Travel Blogs from Glasgow
Friday morning was an early start, 6:30am (1:30am EST) as we packed up, said goodbye to the owners of Bramble Cottage and made the hour and half journey over to Glasgow to return our car and head to the airport.

Dad and I set off from the flat this morning at 5.45am to arrive at Glasgow international around 6.15am. Check in went surprisingly smoothly, as did security! 7h15 flight direct to Newark international with plenty of new films to keep me occupied, firstly Brave! (Then pitch perfect...both great!)
