Visit To Scone Palace

I was on foot, walking from the bus stop to Scone Palace in Perth, Scotland – a beautiful walk I might say with idyllic pastures leading up to the entrance.  Here is a fence for keeping the cattle contained.  The Run*A*Round Ranch Report

When sightseeing in Glasgow I came across this interesting art mural.  I love wall art!  This one happened to be on a building right next to the tour bus I was about to get on, so I didn’t get to see if Glasgow had a plethora of wall artists or if this was just one of a few.  I came across an interesting article titled The Wonderful World of Glasgow Street Art and Graffiti. It looks like there is plenty of wall art in Glasgow, so I’ll definitely keep my eyes peeled on my next visit to this wonderful city!

Visiting Glasgow

This week I traveled by train to Glasgow to do a little sightseeing (you can tell I’m not a native because I didn’t say “a wee bit o’ sightseeing”).  On the way back to Perth I was able to get some beautiful shots of the bright blue sky and billowy clouds to share with http://skyley.blogspot.co.uk/ Skywatch.

This is an interesting museum: The People’s Palace and Winter Gardens.  It has some of the history of Glasgow with a collection of historical artifacts, photographs, prints and film. Very interesting and worth seeing. Attached to the museum is the Winter Gardens. There is a small cafe with tables and benches so you can enjoy eating in a beautiful setting of plants, flowers and trees.
