Spare Kilt?

Any skinny MacLarens looking for s spare kilt? There’s one now at Mr. Ben! Quite a few moth holes though…

Advanced Beer School

In the afternoon, we went to Brewdog Glasgow for a couple of drinks and an Advanced Beer School. Megan taught us about off-flavours, hops, food pairing and more.

Morning Well Spent

Morning well spent: Provand’s Lordship, coffee at the Brew Box Coffee TARDIS, an animal mummy exhibition at the Kelvingrove, concluded with a cheese steak sandwich at Roast.

Arrival in Glasgow

Arrived in Glasgow with a little delay, so we quickly checked into the hostel to shower and change. Headed to the very hot Merchant Chippie for some battered haddock, haggis, and chips.

We needed to cool down after that, so we had a couple of beers at Drygate. We finished the first evening at the DogHouse, BrewDog’s only restaurant at the moment, but luckily just a bar as well. Another BrewDog location to check off our list!

Glasgow, Balquhidder & Lochearnhead Highland Games

Leaving for Scotland again! We enjoyed traveling by rail so much last time, we decided to take the train again. We’re only using daytime trains this time, and stopping in London just long enough to have lunch in between our connections.

But first, let’s leave, so we can actually catch our train!

The Glasgow subway is magic


Anonymous asked: “I’m Dutch. I went to Glasgow, and visited Stirling. I wasn’t having issues with the inclines on foot. I guess it depends on the person. The Glasgow subway is magic.”

It sure is. Before the recent refurbishment, it was like stepping back into a seventies living room. Waxed brown tiles on the wall, the trickle of water water running between the tracks, yellowing tiles underfoot, as a vibrant garishly orange train lurches to a stop.



Pictures of Glasgow


Okay, so, I was asked what my favourite pictures of Glasgow are. Here are some I’ve taken over the years.

The aftermath of gigs.


The humour in the face of adversity;


The flowers in Victoria Park;


The heads in Kelvingrove Art Gallery;


The bear on Hyndland Road;


The Mural at Hyndland train station;


The University of Glasgow;


University Avenue;


A man playing a banjo outside the Botanic Gardens;


The colours of autumn in the Botanic Gardens;


And finally, a squirrel eating a sausage roll;


Last Day in Glasgow

Last day in Glasgow. Exactly one year after the Independence Referendum. Lots of people on George Square remembering/celebrating this.
Just enough time to meet some friends over Fyne Ales, and for a last visit to BrewDog Glasgow

Fallen Brewing Co TTO

Fallen Brewing Co tap takeover at BrewDog Glasgow yesterday. Surprisingly good ‘pilsner’! But afterwards we returned to the beers from the ‘regular’ guest bottle list anyway.

Leisurely Day

Had a nice, leisurely day today. Scored a great Barbour jacket for h–na at Mr Ben’s, went to MegaByte for a drink and to play some Street Fighter, we finally managed to get to the Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre, and we went to the Glasgow Police Museum.
Apparently they quite like Dutch beers at Blackfriars: not just Heineken — oh, the horror — but Rooie Dop and De Molen as well. We stuck to British beers however. 🙂
