Our first National Trust for Scotland site was a castle 5 minutes down the road called Culzean Castle. It was a sweet garden castle with an amazing fortress house atop a high cliff. The inside was another lavishly decorated home with the most amazing armory we has seen in any castle; It had all the sabers, rifles and pistols all displayed in really cool patterns, all artistically designed. It also had a lush red oval shaped central staircase, which blew our mind.

Along the road we came to search through a little town which was a monument to a poet named Richard Burns, some kind of Scottish folk hero. It was there we got to explore the formal gardens and what's called Brig-a-Doon, an ancient stone bridge (1400’s).

Glasgow, in a haze of drizzle, was as far as most cities here are concerned, is a modern city. It looked to us a little like central Sydney. There is a huge population of students there as there is a big university. Probably Hogwarts. Oh wait no that’s England. Glasgow as Bigwig will remember is full of red traffic lights which make him very hot. We’re not sure what Bigwig hates more; Overheating or getting the death wobbles at 50 m/h. I think another wheel balance is due.

Eventually we got to Loch Lomond, which is the biggest lake here and after browsing about a cute little cottage town called Luss, we settled down for the evening along the side of the Loch.
