Travel Blogs from Cumbernauld
Greece was a great place and I was glad I decided to go there. After a good sleep it was time to get up and get breakfast, before I made my way to the airport and fly home.
After getting home I was about to encounter the first travel issues of the trip. During my time in Greece I had no issues but within one hour of being back in the UK, I was about to encounter my first travel issues.
Sunday morning bright and chilly we walk along the Leigh Walkway to the Botanical Gardens. We were early so watched dogs chase balls and greet each other..seems Scottish love their dogs and enjoy sports on Sunday morning - some tennis matches and runners. The gardens were spectacular well worth a visit. On our way back we chanced upon a street market where everything looked amazing. We grabbed a meat and ...
... After we found the Maritime Museum, mainly focused on the North Sea oil exploration and extractions -not very innovative in its presentation, although some of the diving gear is impressive and immense (one suit weighs over 800 lbs). We picked up a map of a walking tour of old Aberdeen. We walked through a rather rough area of town nearly got run down three times (cars do not ...
... was particularly informative. I relayed much of what I remember in my previous Edinburgh post. There is quite a bit that I do not remember or that I do not care to explain because it would be much too long.
However, I would suggest looking up the story of the Scottish Stone of Destiny because it is incredibly amusing and pokes a bit of fun at the British. Gotta love that.
So along our three-hour walking tour, I of course purchased a peanut ...
... was fortified with guns and tunnels that run under the surface. Inchcolm Island, as well as others in the Firth of Forth, all had edifices built on top of them to make them appear as battleships in the distance. This was because, during WWII, Britain (and many others) were terrified of the U-boats, and they hoped that these islands could trick the German periscopes poking out of the sea to believe that they were surrounded by battleships.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort - A QHotel Cumbernauld
I was excited to spend a night at the 4 star hotel with my toddler, who I thought would enjoy the leisure facilities especially the swimming pool. My hubby was looking forward to having a go at golf. So off we went during the Easter weekend. We managed to have a good time using the swimming, spa facilities.
Stayed here overnight on 17th Feb.
Had a lovely relaxing time. Rooms were to a very high standard, staff were pleasant & helpful and our meals were excellent.
Spent a few hours enjoying the leisure facilities too.
(There was some building work going on around the hotel but this never caused any disruptions at all -so don't let this put you off.)
Would certainly stay here again!
Just returned from a 2 night stay in 'The Westerwood'. We were sent a special offer which allowed us to stay, at this so called 4 star hotel, for £200 in a deluxe room for two nights including dinner. Not a bad deal we thought, so off we went...
I have stayed in the Westerwood three times now and feel compelled to write this review for the following resons......
As a party of 4 persons we were looking for a hotel in the Glasgow area. Due to Rolling Stones Concert, Glasgow was fully booked but we managed to obtain rooms here. Some things are meant to be. This hotel is wonderful. It is located right next to a golf course, so plenty of space to walk along its paths and relax. The food is very much up market, smaller portions of extremely high quality. So good, we did not go into Glasgow the second day but ate there again - however, it is at a price - 3 course meal for 4 with wine etc £125. Sometimes you have to spoil yourself. Reception very clean and staff ever so helpful - thanks Maria. Bedroom, bigger than expected and at our request, we had a room overlooking the golf course area - very quiet indeed. First class bathroom, large bath and separate power shower. Usual tea/coffee facilities, biscuits, chocolates left on pillows for you and bottles of mineral water.
Perfectly acceptable for an overnight stay
The Westerwood is perfectly acceptable for an overnight stay and convenient for a quick run into Glasgow. 64 pounds for bed and breakfast was OK as the room was nice with nice fittings and modern lighting, a good view of the golf course and a pleasant walking path,the meal was good and the staff attentive, it was busy with bus parties and other parties, so maybe some other time might have been better as the breakfast was chaotic and children everywhere, but I would stay here again if I could,nt get into the city centre.
As major building work is being undertaken perhaps its not the best time to stay at this hotel.
Always a pleasant place to stay
I stay regularly at the Westerwood on business, usually just staying one night and find it to be a great place to stay. All the rooms I have stayed in have been very comfortable. I normally go for a swim, sauna and jacuzzi, which is great after a busy day travelling, then working. The restaurant is good, but if you want something a little quicker and cheaper the bar meals are more than adequate and well served. Room service is also fine. The hotel is in a lovely area with good views and a golf course, which seems quite popular. Staff are always friendly and I have always felt very much at home there.
It is rare I write about any hotel or go to the bother of praising staff but I was so impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of the staff at the Westerwood I feel I must make the effort on this occasion.
