Today in Glasgow proved extremely wet.

Greenbank Garden

 From time to time I dip and out of nearby Greenbank Garden to monitor the changing seasons by way of photographing the plants and foliage. The heavy rain deterred visitors so I had the luxury of the garden to myself. With aid of a golf umbrella I obtained some reasonable images with the dark and rainy background providing an added dimension by way of colour contrasts.

Today, we undertook a private, small group tour as follows:

  • Left Glasgow prompt at 9.00am
  • Arrive Stirling Castle about 10.20am. Here we undertook a short tour covering  the Great Hall, Chapel Royal, Kitchens, Tapestry Weaving and general aspects of the castle’s architecture and history. Also views across the surrounding landscape including Wallace Monument.

This morning, I collected my group of five guests from the Crown Princess Cruise Ship at Greenock at about 0830am and then proceeded as follows:
  • Drove through the old industrial port areas of Greenock and Port Glasgow, past Port Glasgow Timber Ponds along the River Clyde and acroos the Erskine Bridge to our first stop at Luss, a very quaint and colourful village on the banks of Loch Lomond. Just before the village we stopped to admire some extremely colourful gardens at private houses.
