The Botanic Gardens glasshouse was a beautiful Victorian white-painted iron and glass building, with an oddly modern shape. Not quite as big as the one here in Edinburgh, but still housing a wide array of plants from all over the world, arranged in different scenes and settings and best of all it is free fun! If it had not been raining I would have liked to wander further round the ground as they looked very pretty, damn this dismal Scottish weather!

Then me moved onto Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, which is an odd assortment of art and weird little bits of history.
Just liked the Botanics, Kelvingrove is free fun! There is a nice little cafe inside, which is more of a dinner-style menu than sandwiches and soup and was a wee bit pricey but still enjoyable and for every family with kids or a little brother like mine, you’ll be delighted to know there is an ice-cream van outside! There is also a cafe inside, but I couldn’t tell you much about it, I could guess at it was more of a coffee store. The layout of the gallery is great, easy to navigate in a way that you know that you haven’t missed anything. Start on the second floor at one end and make your way along and down and then back along again in one easy circle.

The Brownie of Blednoch by EA Hornel
I forgot to take a note of what this painting was called/who it was by and I don’t actually like it. Well, I do. I like the idea of it, but the actual style doesn’t do anything for me.
Regina Cordium – Alice Wilding by Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Interesting way of displaying jewellery.
