    What are the top places for scotch and haggis and sights to see in Glasgow?

    Pot Still on Hope street is correct but any decent pub in Glasgow will have decent whisky, as any decent non-specialist restaurant will have decent haggis. For both, and decent beer, decent service, and a proper scottish pub try the Babbity Bowster. The Cafe Gandolfi is a Glasgow institution you'll get some classy haggis in there, plus the whisky, and a lot more besides. Go to The Corinthian and The Counting House for city centre pubs with great interiors, The Art School and the Hunterston Museum for Rennie Macintosh. Walk the Merchant City, Princes Square, Ashton Lane, have a pint in Jinty McGintys, do a play and a pint at lunchtime in Oran Mor. The Horseshoe bar if you want a proper old school Glasgow pub. over 5 years ago

    Best time to visit Scotland nature?

    May is usually the best month as the midges haven't usually got going properly. You will get varied weather but if you've got the gear it's oftern also a very beautiful month. June is often wetter and in April it can still be pretty cold and windy. over 6 years ago

    Any ideas of accommodation in Italy for husband and wife, 48 and 50, planning 3 month holiday? We're not wealthy so can't be too expensive.

    Check out the Agrotourism websites. You can stay in lovely places much more cheaply than hotels. almost 7 years ago

    Where is the best place to stay in Glasgow?

    Depends on your budget but the Mal Maison is very cool. The best in their chain in my opinion. Each room is designed differently - it's not too big, has a ovely basement bar and restaurant, centre easily walkable. Not too expensive either, but not the cheapest. Check it out. There are others but only consider them if, for some reason, this doesn't fit the bill. about 6 years ago

    What all is there to do in Mauritius for a month?? I'm visiting someone soon and want to have a plan

    You are going to find yourself slowing down significantly after a week or so but hire a car and go everywhere yourself for a week at least. The botanic gardens in Pamplemousse, Casela bird Park, Domaine Les Pailles, Port Louis market, at least one boat trip. If you don't snorkel or dive learn whilst you are there. If you do then book some drop-offs by boat. Eat Mauritian food. over 7 years ago

    Going on a 6 day trip around Scotland in summer 2013. Any tips on activities and things to see ?

    Basically a good round trip is up the west coast to Ullapool back down the the East via Inverness and Dundee. Places to visit, assuming a start from Glasgow:- Hill-house, Helensburgh. Rennie Macintosh's masterpiece, gives you a nice drive up the Clyde. Drive on - stop at the Loch Fynne Oyster bar for sea food as fresh and good as it can be. Drive on to Inveraray, visit the Jail or the Castle, both great. You now have a classic bit of road in front of you to Oban - one of those used in adverts and car shows, absolutely ace. Stay over in Oban and visit the Observatory. You can then either scuttle over to Mull from where you could take trips to Iona and Staffa (Fingals Cave), or carry on up the west coast into 'the Big Stuff'. I'd recommend statying in Glencoe rather than Fort William and getting you boots on, if you are reasonably fit. You've got choices of classic and spectacular hill-walks which are all miles better than trogging up the Ben. If you are fit do go over to Fort William and walk the Ring of Steal rather than the Ben; absolutely ace. From there up through Torridon, again if you want to walk Slioch is a good one. The whole journey then is full of terrific country; mountains beaches and islands, and there are any number of diversions you could take, to the various islands and penninsulars, all of which are lovely. I'd recommend stopping in Gairloch, and visiting the tropical gardens at Inverewe. On to Ullapool, stay there. Back to Inverness. Stop in Dundee and vist the Discovery, whcih is permanently moored there. Edinburgh and Glasgow both have plenty to enjoy, but generally Glasgow is better and less pricey for a night out. Stirling Castle too is well worth a visit. The visitor Centre At New Lanark if you want a bit of industrial history in a beautiful setting that you won't get anywhere else in the world. Further south Drumlanrig Castle is an amazing slice of british aristocratic priviliedge (thieving b's). Culzean Castle too, (a bit closer to the central belt). Plan yourself an itinery, maybe with a few of those places and a distillery visit or two chucked in, come over and enjoy. over 6 years ago
