Our A La Carte menu has had a bit of a makeover…
Megan from our Housekeeping team is currently studying Interior Design, so we roped her in and asked for a sketch of our skyline view. We love what she’s put together!
We’ve also added some new dishes which we’ll continue to photograph for you all!
Thank you Megan!
We had a good view today as the 72nd annual taxi outing got under way….
Once a year, many of the city’s drivers give up their time to create a special day for local children with support needs. Over 100 drivers get dressed up and decorate their taxis with colourful balloons. Over 300 kids are driven around the city and then taken down to Troon for a day at the beach.
We hope everyone involved has a great day!
Today’s recommended event is the “The Tenement House” at Hillhead Library.
Free entry. Talk begins at 6.30pm and lasts 75 minutes. Arrive early to guarantee a seat.
Catherine Provan of the NTS Tenement House in Garnethill provides a rare glimpse into life in Glasgow in the early 20th century, in the faithfully restored four-room house lived in by Miss Agnew Toward for over half a century. Learn what it meant to be an “independent woman” in the first half of the 20th century, experience how ordinary folk lived, and appreciate how many of the household amenities we now take for granted were considered luxuries less than a century ago.
