Kirsten picked us up in her van at the cruise terminal. She knew just where to go and timed everything just right! WE were able to see Glasgow University, Newark Castle, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (highly recommend) and also headed to George Square/Buchannan Street via the subway. Kirsten does a great job explaining the architecture and you can tell she loves Glasgow. She also took us to have some hot chocolate that was comparable to Angelina's in Paris. WE enjoyed Glasgow and want to come back!
