I took the train up to Glasgow for Hogmannay, the Scottish celebration of New Year. The year before I had gone to Edinburgh and the year before that Inverness, so I had had a taste of the Scots enthusiasm for the calendar rollover.
|Glasgow University looked Gothic Victorian - the sort of building that reeks of respectability and the ability of people to better their lot.|
|The celebrations in George Square were quite fun. It was supposed to be ticket only, but I blagged my way in with
doefully pleading expression and some well-placed comments on how friendly the city was.
Inside the music included the Bay City Rollers with some great numbers, and there was a certain amount of plaid and tartan in residence.
|The local lads were partying on into the night in some of the clubs, but I felt like getting back to bed before dawn. However, once back at the hotel it would have been rude to refuse the owner's offer of a wee dram. :-)|
