Do You Read Your Hotel Reviews Before Stepping Onto the Plane?

Fri, 12 Jan 2018 13:39:11 +0000

We’ve all heard the scams about cockroach infested hotels, legionnaire’s disease, unclean nylon sheets, paint peeling off the walls, dirty windows….if you’ve watched ‘The Hotel’ in the UK you’ve probably seen some of them. Fawlty Towers is not the done thing these days. There are many ways to book your holiday and choose your hotel […]

Above Below Beyond by Janeanne Gilchrist at the Fergusson Gallery, Perth, Scotland

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 05:10:03 +0000

When I visited the Fergusson Gallery in mid November 2017, it was the day before the Above Below Beyond exhibition was due to open. The photographer Janeanne Gilchrist is the recipient of the 2018 Fergusson Arts Award. These underwater images were taken by Gilchrist when free diving off the Scottish coast. The Above Below Beyond […]

A Fine Line at the City Art Centre Edinburgh

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 05:58:12 +0000

You can see A Fine Line at the City Art Centre Edinburgh until 18 February 2018. The exhibition features the work of four contemporary artists who all currently live and work in Scotland. The exhibition was right up my street, as it questioned the line between art and craft. I don’t think that there is […]

West Highland Line to Oban

Thu, 04 Jan 2018 05:29:19 +0000

Taking the West Highland Line from Glasgow to Oban is a train journey which I’d been intending to do for ages. I seized the opportunity when Scotrail announced their £17 return fare between any two stations in Scotland, available to members to Scotrail Club 50 members. Below is a pictorial record of the railway journey […]

Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art Porto

Thu, 28 Dec 2017 05:29:59 +0000

The Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art was high on my must-visit list in Porto. The museum is located to the west of the city centre. Fortunately, there was a direct bus from close to our apartment. There’s a 10 Euro admission fee to the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, which includes admission to Serralves Park. […]

Willow Tea Rooms at Watt Brothers Glasgow

Mon, 25 Dec 2017 05:18:42 +0000

Visiting a Willow Tea Room in Glasgow is something that I’d been meaning to do for ages. My opportunity came when the Willow at Watt Brothers in Sauchiehall Street, hosted an event during Doors Open Days in September 2017. It was a morning event with a talk about the history of tea in Glasgow, during […]

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 05:29:29 +0000

The Songs for Winter exhibition of works, by Pauline Burbidge and Charles Poulson, at the City Art Centre in Edinburgh, runs until 4 March 2018. It’s a wonderful exhibition which I highly recommend. But bear in mind that the City Art Centre is currently closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Britannia Panopticon in Glasgow

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 05:34:58 +0000

Glasgow’s Britannia Panopticon is the world’s oldest surviving music hall. It opened in the late 1850s. One of Britannia Panopticon’s claims to fame is that the sixteen year old Stan Laurel (of Laurel and Hardy) made this first stage appearance there. There’s plenty of memorabilia to see including costumes, musical instruments, photos and posters. There are […]

Visiting the Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis in Porto

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 05:07:56 +0000

I visited the Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis in Porto on a Sunday when I thought that it was free to enter. It was rather embarassing as when I sauntered in, a member of staff came after me saying that I had to pay an admission fee. I turned out that free admission is […]
