We are up and ready to catch our train to Glasgow at 6.45am. It's about 4 hours journey from Inverness to Glasgow, the train was on time and we reach Glasgow around 11am. Glasgow is one of the biggest industrial town of Britain, it's got the characteristic of any other city, so i would not say there is anything special about Glasgow. There are some monuments and heritage structures which can be explored and as always we preferred to walk around the city to explore these sites.We reached a open garden and it started raining here, it wasn't surprising, as in Britain it can rain anytime round the year, so it is suggested to carry windsheaters with you, for us this was the only time it rained. We took shelter under a big tree and me and Wifey took out our beer cans and started sipping on some beer. When it stopped drizzling, we walked ahead and reached a beautiful museum, which showcased the absolute history of Glasgow. It was quite a good experience knowing the city so well.After the museum we walked through the market of Glasgow and finally we decided to reach the train station as we had a train to catch to go to the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh. Trains leave at an interval of every 15 minutes from Glasgow to Edinburgh. We reached Edinburgh at around 2.30 in the afternoon, we were not really very hungry so we decided to pick up some sandwiches to eat. It was suggested by friends to explore Edinburgh, so we decided to take this special city tour bus. We paid 20 Pounds per person for this double-decker city tour bus which had open roof tops and it takes you on a 1 hour city tour with a recorded voice talking to you about the monument or place you are passing through.

Speyside Distillers Co Ltd
Spreading out from the River Spey it is one of the principal whisky producing regions of Scotland and one of the most prettiest places. With the maximum number of distilleries located in this part of Scotland- it’s best to hire a car for the day and make your way through the distilleries, do ensure that you entrust at teetotaler as the designated driver though!
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum
Don’t miss: Shopping! Dedicate one full day because after all this is the country’s biggest shopping mecca after London! While Style Mile boasts of all the big brands, West End has quirky options. Next day I immersed myself in paintings at Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Glasgow School of Art and the Mackintosh House, but frankly Glasgow was a bit of a disappointment, maybe because the city lacks a distinct flavour.Eat: Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding and a drink at Horseshoe Bar, the longest continuous bar in Europe. Day 6 & 7: Birmingham Distance from Glasgow: 466kmUK’s second largest city had to be on my agenda for just one reason – it’s the home of the Cadbury Factory and the child in me just had to visit.
