Glasgow and Loch Lomond

Well the Edinburgh Marathon is now behind us and we've moved on to Glasgow. Thanks to all those who wished my wife well - on an incredibly hot day she recorded an excellent time of 4 hours and 19 minutes. The blisters were only minor and we managed to walk up to Edinburgh Castle the following day.


My vintage postcards of Glasgow are nowhere near as plentiful as those of Edinburgh, but what few I have are shared below. Also, as our journey has including some of the surrounding contryside, I've also included some from places like Loch Lomond and Largs. From Largs we took a day trip by boat to the Island of Cumbrae - very beautiful, and great views across the nearby islands as well. I now have an apetite for more.
