Having major problems with DragonDrop – going to dump the rough notes of this for now and tidy it up as I go along…
(I’m putting at least some of that down to my recent ‘Get Things Done’ life hacking adjustments.) After a brief foray into Glasgow where we found the biggest sweetshops I’d ever seen a quick flick through the Lonely Planet I’d picked up at ‘Free Amazon’ (or “The Library” as some people call it) revealed an activity that I’d actually been meaning to have a look at for some time – The Glasgow Science Centre.
The was a fantastic place. They have really designed it specifically with the for not just the enquiring minds, but also their poking fingers counterparts. Several floors of fascinating things to do – they have taken interactive to a new level and perhaps due to its location, the time of day and its comparatively expensive entrance fee, it was quiet. We (and a handful of other people who seemed to be outnumbered by the staff) had the run of the place. Themed areas allowing all of our little ones to have a head full of fascinating inspiring info. Would really recommend it (yes, even from Harrogate – the drive was quite a joy – empty roads all the way!)
Our first abode was up in the Highlands ‘proper’ in a cosy wood lodge on the bank of Loch Oich. From where I typed the first draft of this blog I could glance up over the loch and snow capped mountains beyond. Absolutely stunning scenery.
No draft beers. Seemingly high priced bottles. Big grr when we asked for a jug of water and were told no. No tap water. I asked him to confirm and he said they didn’t have any taps. Just (£3 PER BOTTLE) water.
