Day 1GlasgowArrive Glasgow: Madainn mhath! While your Gaelic may be a little rusty, your visit to Glasgow will be anything but. After checking in, resist the urge to recover from your journey and hit its edgy streets on your own exploration of the sights. Keep a brolly at hand so Glasgow's notoriously unpredictable mochie doesn't put a damp end to your sightseeing. And even if it does, there's a cozy pub on every corner to warm your heart with a little local whisky. You'll meet your Travel Director and fellow travelers later for a glimpse into what lies ahead, then spend a free evening perhaps with a wee dram or two at a favorite local.

Accommodations: Ibis City Center
Day 2GlasgowGlasgow Sightseeing and free time: Kick-start your day with a lesson in Glasgow's industrial past and modern revival that have given the city its characteristic gallus strut. Your orientation tour of the city will include views of Glasgow Cathedral and George Square where many of Scotland's famous sons are immortalized in stone. Enjoy views of the People's Palace, the Winter Gardens and the River Clyde, which for over 200 years was the center of shipbuilding.

Take a moment to remember the MacDonald clansmen who were massacred in 1692 fighting relentlessly for their beliefs.
