Today, I went to photograph the conservation village of Eaglesham, south of Glasgow. This is a ‘planned village’ with some fascinating architecture. The place name appears to have nothing to do with eagles; its a corruption of the Low Latin word for church ecclesia with an unusual English -ham ending. Here is a selection of images taken late November.

This is the Eglinton Arms hotel in the centre of Eaglesham

On the way home stopped at the aptly named Waterfoot and took some pics of the weir and river.

Following resolution of technical problems, Glasgow’s Science Centre Tower has reopened. The structure stands at a height of 416 feet (127 metres) above the city and affords a magnificent 360 degree view.

During the winter the Tower is open Tuesday to Sunday 11.00am to 5.00pm.

Glengoyne distillery near Strathblane now offers a two hour master blending class where students learn to mix their own blended Scotch Whisky.

Cost of the course is GBP25.00 ($50.00).

Each student’s product is poured into a 100ml bottle to take home. A certificate is also provided. However, the exact recipe remains in Glengoyne’s registry of blends.

Glengoyne’s malt is found in Isle of Skye and Langs blended brands.
