... up, we stopped at Glasgow University as well to pick up other IFSA students and then we were on our way! Drove for a couple hours and enjoyed the scenery, hopped onto a ferry (on the bus) and then we were there! We all met up in the common room at the Benmore Center where students of Edinburgh Uni, St. Andrews Uni, Glasgow Uni's and Stirling Uni congregated.

Day 3 - Sunday. We took a drive to see the house where Bob lived immediately before coming to Australia in Pollok. A number of other members of the family have been back to have their photo taken, the last one being Blake just a ...
... Monument. The monument seemed to be a much less touristy stop, despite being just as beautiful as the castle itself. Plus, you could climb to the top of the monument and view the entire counryside INCLUDING the castle itself. So it really was a great piece of advice.
