Scotland Road Trip: Glasgow & Edinburgh
We've pretty much completed our road trip now. Now leaving Isle of Skye, it's time to see a bit of Glasgow and try out the different vegan food available in Glasgow.
After looking around the place we headed to Mono which is a vegan pub/music venue and had a nice dinner. There was so many options that it was hard to choose. Scottish pub food made vegan. We aren't used to having so many options so it took us awhile.
We must have been a bit tired from the road trip because we went back to the Kumar Suites and watched some TV before heading to bed.
The next morning we drove to Kind Crusts which has vegan donuts, pastries, and sandwiches. We got some donuts and then ended up preordering some donuts for the next day.
We walked around the city centre of Glasgow exploring for awhile and then headed to a place called Stereo for lunch. This is yet another vegan pub/cafe/music venue.
After lunch we went to the Lighthouse which is the national centre for design and architecture. They have a tower with a good view of the city.
Yeah the view was much better from the real lighthouse viewing point at the top of the tower. The tower used to be a water silo to use in case of fires as the building was the home of the newspaper The Glasgow Herald.
The Duke Wellington statue with the traffic cone on his head was much more entertaining than anything inside the GoMA.
We packed it in for the night and made some dinner at Kumar Suites since we had some food left over from our supplies earlier. We watched some TV and relaxed. Our friend 12yearsavegan and his friend went out on the town and didn't come back until late.
We went to Glasgow Cathedral afterwards to see inside. It is a pretty nice cathedral.
We drove to Edinburgh and found a place to park near the Castle. We walked towards new town and went to the Scottish National Gallery. Edinburgh definitely looked a lot different this time of year compared with when we went during the Fringe Festival.
The train fare we paid for the trip was such a good deal. We paid £40 return for both of us which is really cheap if you compare it to what it usually costs to travel to Edinburgh from Birmingham.
We would very highly recommend that anyone go on a Scotland road trip. It is one of the best road trips you could go on and you would not be disappointed.
