Largs Scotland

View across Largs in North Ayrshire - as you can see the water was gone, and a young man was searching the ground. In the back you see the ferry from Largs to Great Cumbrae Island.


This is the view across Gourock from the Lyle Hill. The ferry (MV Saturn) to Dunoon is just leaving. Lyle Hill provides fantastic views, on clear days even as far as Glasgow! (Thanks to Bernie o'Neill for pointing out that the shot was done from Lyle Hill, not Tower Hill.)

Glasgow Hope Street

Glasgow is a busy city - and best known for its many excellent shops. This is Hope Street, one of the main shopping streets in Glasgow. In the back you see the Central Station.

George Square Glasgow

On this sunny day, the greens on Glasgow's George Square were packed with people enjoying the sun.

GoMA Glasgow

One of the main cultural attractions in Glasgow is the Gallery of Modern Art, or short GoMA. It opened its doors in 1998 and shows changing exhibitions of modern (excentric?) artists. Free entrance.

Gallery of Modern Art Glasgow

This is the statue in front of the GoMA gallery. At first I thought someone had put up the colorful cone during the night (for example from a bachelors party) - but then I noticed that the cone can also be seen on the photo in our travel guidebook. So I think this is just art. Well done, GoMA! :-)

Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art

Next to the GoMA there are street cafes and restaurants - as you can imagine it was very busy on such a beautiful day with temperatures up to 28 C.

The Tall Ship Glasgow

This is the "S.V. Glenlee", better known as "The Tall Ship" of Glasgow harbour. The ship contains a maritime museum today, offering an opportunity to find out about the ship's maritime heritage and also that of Glasgow and the Clyde. Surely interesting, but a bit expensive (£ 4.50 per Person). So we decided that we wanted to see more of Scotlands nature and headed towards Loch Lomond...

Loch Lomond Shores Balloch

Drumkinnon Tower of Loch Lomond Shores in Balloch - we were amazed at the fact that anybody would actually build such a big and ugly thing, let alone to the shores of beautiful Loch Lomond. The whole "Loch Lomond Shores" estate can be easily skipped on your trip - it's more or less just about shops and restaurants. But then again, maybe you need to dive in here first in order to really appreciate the silence of the National Park later?

Loch Lomond Activities

The whole area is definitely a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. At twenty-seven and a half square miles, Loch Lomond is Britain's largest single inland waterway. Once on the water or in the woods, you will soon forget about the shopping bonanza happening at "Loch Lomond Shores".

Loch Lomond Canoe

At the "Loch Lomond Shores" you can also hire canoes to enjoy a few hours on the lake, er, loch.

Loch Lomond

On our way to Tarbet we stopped directly at the shore, and found this tiny harbour. The sky was still blue - but this should change soon...
