Tour Group at Wallace Monument, Scotland

This morning I collected four guests from Glasgow Airport and proceeded on a tour as follows:

First to Pollok Park where we photographed a small herd of Highland Cattle.

Next to Pollok House, a 18th century mansion linked to the Maxwells. We were too early to visit interior of thr property but we did explore the stables and gardens. In the former was an impressive Clydesdale horse whilst the gardens were in immaculate condition, very lush and colourful.
