The International Poster Exhibition is on at The Lighthouse in Glasgow until 25 November 2017. It’s part of the Graphic Design Festival Scotland. My favourite poster was one depicting Martin Luther King wearing a Trump-like baseball cap with the caption ‘This was not my dream’.

When I was in the Spanish city of Malaga, I decided to treat myself to lunch at the Kaleido Restaurant, which is situated on the prom at the port. I’m usually on the lookout for a menu of the day for around 10 Euro. At Kaleido, the lunch set menu was more expensive at 17 […]

I stayed at the County Hotel North Berwick on a Sunday night in mid September 2017. I’ve visited the Scottish east coast town of North Berwick many times on day trips, but I was tempted to stay for the night when I found a single room for £19 for the night, on a room only […]

On my recent trip to Porto, I focused on visiting museums related to art and which offered free or reduced entry with my Porto Card. Casa Oficina Antonio Carneiro fitted the bill. It’s located in the house/workshop built in 1920 for the painter Antonio Carneiro. The building was also used by Antonio’s sons, the painter […]

With around 522,000 visits to the Costa Brava in August 2014 alone, this region is clearly a tourist hotspot for holiday-goers. With one of the most unspoilt stretches of coastline in Europe, delicious food and a beautifully warm climate, it’s understandable why travellers flock to the resorts there. This isn’t a spot that just caters […]

Review of the Royal Hotel Oban

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 16:24:22 +0000

I stayed at the Royal Hotel Oban on a Thursday night in late September 2017. I’d always wanted to do the railway journey from Glasgow to Oban, so when the Scotrail £17 return flat fare for Club 50 members came up, I decided to stay in Oban for one night. The stay was for two […]
