Day 1 in Scotland: walking the West Highland Way

Day 1: Explore Glasgow. We landed at 6:45 am, paid to have our luggage held, and spent the day wandering the city.
First off, the incredibly massive necropolis overlooking the cathedral:

Then, we walked down to the cathedral for church, as it was Sunday. I LOVE worshipping in other churches when I travel, which my sister thinks is weird. The congregation at the Glascow cathedral was very warm and welcoming, and we had tea with them afterward.

 We walked through the City Centre to enjoy some street art on the way to fish and chips at a place my sister had heard recommended - and it was delicious, too!

Then we cut through the Barras market - a large outdoor market that dates from the 1920's - on the way to the People's Palace, containing a lovely botanical garden and a museum about the city.

That was about all the time we had in Glasgow, so we took a bus back to the airport, retrieved our luggage, and headed to our bed and breakfast in adorable Drymen. Drymen is where we discovered that Scotland isn't just about the whiskey - it's also obsessed with gin! Although - we started with beer.

We just about passed out during dinner, we were so tired, but we managed to get back to our beds before crashing. Next up: the walk begins.
