Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum

At the end of February, I ventured up to Glasgow for an incredibly brief visit. Obviously, the limited time meant I had to pick my activities very carefully, and after much deliberation, I settled on the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum. It is Scotland's most visited museum, so clearly it has something going for it!…

Lowther Castle

A few weeks ago, I made a visit to another local attraction and historical gem, Lowther Castle. I have already visited the parkland surrounding the Castle when I went to¬†Lowther Show, and I thought it high time that I visited the shell of the building that remains.
