Scotland [Part 5]

20th August 2008Isle of Sky - Glascow

Back again to Scotland trip. Ok! Ok! This is the last post about Scotland trip. After that, my post will about Europe trip, Advanced Diploma convocation and lots more.

This is the 5th day of the Scotland Trip and we really start to dislike the programme being organised by the student coordinator especially the accomodation provided. Early morning, inside the coach, the student coordinator informed us that tonight we will separate into 2 hostel again. "What the ....", Not Again!!!! Why can't this people organised their things properly? I really just don't get it. Selection of hostel for that moment was in Glasgow and one more is back to the first hostel that stayed which was Loch Lomond Youth Hostel. Glasgow hostel was not enough for all of us and the student coordinator need to choose 15 people to stay in Loch Lomond Youth Hostel. Hey, who want to stay back at the same hostel whereas Glasgow is much better where we can have night view. So, some of us start to argue for our own right and at last, the solution was we need to share 1 bed with 2 people. This solution is much better than stay back to Loch Lomond.

I was really moody that day. Hard to explain but what to do, put a fake smile and pretend to be happy.

First place that we visited was Eileen Donan Castle. It is now one of the most photographed monuments in Scotland and a popular venue for weddings and film locations. It has appeared in lots of films such as one of the James Bond's movie; The World is Not Enough, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Made of Honor and even Bollywood movie, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. On a clear day it is possible to see the Isle of Skye from this castle. Weather on that day was very clear but we can't see Isle of Sky coz we need to pay for the entrance fee. As usual, if we heard the world "Pay" sure we don't want to have a look inside unless it is worthwhile. So, we just busybody outside the castle and wait for the time to fly.
Second place was Ben Nevis Distilerry but some of us not really interested with it. So we just walk around Fort William city.


At nitgh, walk around the Glasgow city and enjoy the night life. Glasgow was the second largest cities in Scotland with fantastic night life.

Glasgow - Moffat - Sheffield

Last day of Scotland trip. Whole day shopping around Glasgow. Before back to Sheffield, we stopby Moffat to buy Scotland infamous short bread biscuits. The famous brand were Walkers and Campbell. It was much more cheaper than the other places.
