I found a train person and asked them about whether there were later connections and how to get to Windermere, and they said to get on another Glasgow train and get off at another station and catch a train from there to Windermere. So, we got the Glasgow train, got off at the station we were told to and found no trains to Windermere. We quickly found another train man, who said we should have gotten off at the next station (just as the train was leaving). He didn’t know why we would have been told to get off here, but gave us another itinerary to get to Windermere. We had to wait at the station for a while before another Glasgow train came (delayed again slightly, resulting in Rachel kicking her bag across the room in frustration). Finally the train came, took us to the next station and we were finally on the last leg to Windermere.
In town, we walked just over the road to where the hostel was. After knocking on the door and getting no answer, we rang the number and managed to get a room. We got a private double room for the price of a dorm room (saving about 4pounds) and Rachel was finally happy. It was too late to go and find some dinner, so we had some microwave popcorn before going to bed.
