This is an impressive castle ruins with the most amazingly huge walls. Really interesting to see canon balls that had been fired at the castle. Parts of the ruins are currently being renovated but still well worth a visit. The attendant/guide Chris was amazingly helpful and informative.

Summerlee - Museum of Scottish Industrial Life

Reviewed By Nilindy - Glasgow, United Kingdom

Glasgow and the west of Scotland's industrial heritage relied on location, via the Clyde and the tobacco/cotton/sugar trade, resources from Lanarkshires coal and iron reserves, education following the reformation, and entrepreneurial acumen.
Summerlee provides insight into technology , industry and manpower that provided still and iron for the industrialisation that made Glasgow pivotal in the latter half of the nineteenth and first half of the twentieth century's transport revolutio.
Beautifully presented, free and with abundant free parking this gem contrasts starkly with a town that was once the most polluted in the world.

The David Livingstone Centre

There are storeys of stories about David Livingstone, the famous Scottish explorer and missionary, in this birthplace museum of his life and work. Housed in Shuttle Row, a tenement which the Livingstones shared with 23 other families, this historic attraction is packed with items relating to his explorations in Africa. These range from letters and navigation equipment to his gruesome medical kit and hippo and lion skulls! It also gives a fascinating insight into the living and working conditions of 19th-century Scotland.We have children's quizzes and regular events to help keep little ones entertained, along with a sandy playpark and 20 acres of parkland and woodland. Located on the banks of the River Clyde, we are the starting point for some beautiful walks.Our tearoom is run by Motherwell College, providing lunches every weekday from 11am-2pm. Unfortunately the tearoom is not open on weekends.

Great place to visit to get information about David Livingstone for my son's school project. Particularly liked seeing his living area and staff were lovely and informative.
We were originally told it was closed for refurbishment but as work never started it is still open at weekends by volunteers. National Trust for Scotland no longer part of the centre so members don't get in for free now. Bit run down in places so hope they get the funding needed to spruce the place back up as will be well worth a return visit then.

Strathclyde Country Park

Reviewed By Avongrove - Hamilton, Scotland, United Kingdom

Based on a dog walking perspective. Lovely park for a leisurely stroll with the dogs. Only thing I would say would be to avoid the quieter areas at the back of the park behind the theme park. A lot of weird men hang about here and have come across a few strange goings on in the past, things that shouldn’t be happening in daylight in a public park. Needless to say, I stick to the paths round the Loch now. I wouldn’t recommend letting your kids run loose in the more wooded areas. The council really need to get something done about this.

Hilton Strathclyde Spa

Reviewed By scottmG6960NS - Huntingdon

We stayed at the hotel and took the advantage of using the Spa while we were there. All the equipment worked as it should and there were staff available to assist if required. The pool is on the small side but that is fairly normal. I was impressed by the facilities and unlike many hotels, all the equipment worked. We both enjoyed our workout after a bad, bad party.

Friendly staff and all very well organised. Just had a go as my friends were keen to try it. Instruction was clear and although I was the worst of us 3, I did improve over the three sessions and really enjoyed it and would do it again. Recommended.

Great way to spend an afternoon.
Went primarily for two things.
1. Charles Rennie Mackintosh exhibition, this was very good.
2. Crucifixion of Christ. This was on lone. Disappointing :-(
Nice café with great table service.
Good fun free day out. The CRM exhibition was £7 entry but that is a small price to pay for a great museum/gallery that is all free.
Highly recommend.

National Museum of Rural Life

Discover how 300 years of farming and rural home life have shaped and altered Scotland's countryside. Tour the period farmhouse for a sense of what living on a farm was really like more than 50 years ago, and meet the animals on the historic working farm: Ayrshire cows, Tamworth pigs, Scots dumpy hens, black-faced sheep and Clydesdale horses.

Reviewed By Denise L - Whitby, Canada

The National Museum of Rural Life is a fascinating look into the past of farm life. The entry fee was quite reasonable for the hours of learning about how farmers of the past made their living. The exhibits were very interesting covering the clothing, animals, farm tools and machinery. A bumpy ride to the house and farm buildings puts you in the right mood as you head to the farm house. The life of this particular farm is fascinating and our guide Graeme Cumming brought it to life in the tour of the farm house. A perfect preserved farm house, each room a beautiful step into the past. The animals are delightful and well cared for. An extra opportunity for children to learn about the difficult life of a farmer. I recommend seeing the farm in every season to full appreciate our wonderful past.
There is also a delight gift shop and tea shop.
