Glasgow is a busy vibrant city with great shops, restaurants and lots of museums and art galleries. Despite the industrial era which turned the lovely buildings black, the majority have now been cleaned and Glasgow has wonderful terraces of "blond" and red sandstone houses and many large dignified homes in the city's west end. The West End houses the University, the Botanic Gardens with beautiful glasshouses and the huge Kelvingrove museum and art gallery.

All over central Glasgow are reminders of the architecture of Charles Rennie Mackintosh from the Willow Tearooms in Sauchiehall Street to the art school on Garnethill. On the southern side of the Clyde estuary, looking across to Dunoon on the Cowal peninsula, is Inverkip, a conservation village, where sailing and yachting are popular pastimes and there is a large marina.

Further south down the coast, with views across to Bute and Kintyre, is Ardrossan from where the ferry leaves for the Isle of Arran, often known as 'Scotland in Miniature'. Beyond Ardrossan, through Ayr, is Alloway and the cottage, now a small museum, where Robert Burns was born. Burns' family, farmers, moved around the area and he wrote his poems, which became hugely popular, in the local dialect.

A few miles away, overlooking the sea, is Culzean Castle, designed by Robert Adam, before reaching Turnberry, a links course much enjoyed by the golfing fraternity. Just past Turnberry, still on the Ayrshire coast is Girvan from where roads lead inland to the Carrick Fells and through the Galloway Forest Park to Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright. Near Castle Douglas is the ruin of Threave Castle, which was the stronghold of the Black Douglases, Lords of Galloway.

The main road, to and from Stranraer and the Irish ferries, passes through Castle Douglas and then on Dumfries. From here its just a few miles across country Lockerbie a handy stopover on the way north or south, or a place to stay whilst exploring the rolling rural countryside roundabout here. Nearby Gretna Green was the venue for many secret weddings and continues to be a popular place to get married even today.
