Glasgow is becoming one of Europe’s most popular and cultured cities, over the last decade the city has grown and become a city with style and class. Visitors in Glasgow will never be short of anything to do, if you want a gallery or museum there is over 20 to choose from and if you want shopping Glasgow has some of the best shopping outside of London. Glasgow has many gorgeous and striking buildings due to some fantastic Victorian architecture.

As a disabled traveller I have to be very careful about going away on my own. I have been to Glasgow 3 times for Davis cup tennis at Braehead.

I am also an O.A.P. and my family worry about me. The image shown by the series 'Taggart' gives a very scary vision of this lovely old city but I must say that the people I met both in the hotel, the local shop and at Braehead were all kind, friendly and helpful.

Ayr is a large holiday town on the Clyde Coast; the town has fantastic views of the local coastline and countryside. Ayr is an old town with many historic traditions; even though much off its history is protected it does have the facilities of any modern town. One of the big attractions to Ayr is its strong connection with Robert Burns.

A nice friendly town. The bus station could do with an upgrade but the services were very good to surrounding areas including Glasgow. Tam O'Shanter's pub was quaint and Weatherspoons was extremely busy with its usual value for money. The beach was beautifully clean for children to play on.

Excellent location, close to the holiday park for shopping and close to the beach.

Lovely town with friendly people.

A great town with lots of shops and local history. Highlight of visit was a converted church to a Wetherspoons pub. A lot of original features were kept. Another place to go is the town’s oldest pub, Tam O'Shanter in the high street. Easy access to Ayr train station. We went to Glasgow on our last visit and a great time.

Dornoch is an old historic town which is set in a stunning location with beautiful landscape and amazing views. The town is only small in size and population but with its sandy beaches, championship golf course and busy town centre there is a lot to keep visitors interested. Due to its setting walks in the town and surrounding areas are very popular with tourists.

Lovely town with lots of history. A look in the small but very informative museum is a must.

What a lovely village. Welcoming people, interesting shops, lovely breakfast. Will definitely be back.

We stayed in Embo, just a 5 minute drive from Dornoch. Dornoch is a beautiful small town, with beautiful scenery and very historic. There are few nice shops to browse round and The Eagle Hotel is lovely for a bar lunch. The people are very friendly.

Our accomodation was in Embo, just 12 miles from Dornoch, a town not to be missed. The people were very trusting and wonderfully pleasant. Dornoch has both modern and historical aspects and I would not hesitate to return to this beautiful place which is also a good base from which to visit the extreme north of Scotland. I cannot wait to visit again and see all the wonders of my country.

A very pleasant town with enough shops to keep you happy. We also visited Balintore, Thurso, Dingwall, Inverness, Brora, Golspie, Invergordon and Alness. So we got to see a fair bit of the countryside .

A lovely little town with plenty of history. There are some nice little shops, make sure to visit the butchers for the best haggis and black pudding I’ve ever had!

Dumfries once used to be the medieval centre of this region; even though little of that history remains today the town is still busy and popular with visitors. To remind you of its past the town is stacked with museums and galleries which educate you of the town’s important history. The centre however is now more adapted to modern life with a good number of shops, restaurants and bars. The town has two quality golf courses also.

We were staying at Southerness and came into Dumfries for a few hours, really impressed, lovely walks, river is lush, good shopping centre and there is a wicked Chinese on the main street, we got a takeaway and took it back to the caravan for supper :-)

Added by J Scott on 19/04/2012 20:03:52

Dumfries is a great place to visit. It has plenty of eating places for families and couples alike. You will find plenty of information on the towns historical past as they take great pride in their heritage.

Elgin is nice place, been there a few times. Good place to eat and have a drink, has a nice park.

Very pretty town near the coast and easy access to the main A96. On the whisky trail too, so there’s lots of distilleries there and nearby to visit!
