In Scotland we are fortunate to be able to visit many historical sites for free. Most of our museums have free entry and there are loads of interesting hot spots to be visited in Glasgow, including the Transport Museum, the Science Centre, the Gallery of Modern Art, the Anatomy Museum and the Kelvin Grove Art Galleries, to name but a few.
Castles, however, are a different story. We don’t have any castles in Glasgow’s city centre. We do have a few in the outskirts of the city, but they are ruins or low key. Not like the big ones located in Stirling and Edinburgh. Last year, on a trip down from the Isle of Lewis to our hometown within Glasgow, Mister T and I visited Eilean Donan.
“£6 Entry! That’s a bloody disgrace!” I’m a miser, clearly. What’s worse was that I agreed to pay up the cash but I made sure that we got our money’s worth. I think that we spent at least a couple of hours roaming the grounds and checking out all of the different artefacts. I thought I’d share a few photographs with you. It’s nice to do something different. Even if that means shelling out for something you would usually take for granted.
