There are a number of practical holiday tips that will serve you well whether your next self-catering holiday is in Scotland or anywhere else for that matter.

The Tall Ships Race 2011 - Greenock

On Saturday the 9th of July marked the start of the Tall Ships event in Greenock. Over 57 ships from all over the world embarked on the town for a weekend of fun and entertainment. The event itself was free and the crowds were treated to performances from the likes of Lulu, Deacon Blue and other local performing arts groups. The event was nicely closed with a fabulous display by none other than the Red Arrows.

A Visit to the Blairdrummond Safari Park

On Saturday the 2nd of July we headed to the Blairdrummond Safari Park near Stirling. We went because of my daughter’s 5th birthday and we couldn't have picked a better day, the weather was glorious. The only problem with it being so lovely were the crowds, but after the initial kerfuffle at the entrance, we soon forgot all about it.

Glasgow Riverside Museum

Last weekend we visited the newly opened Riverside Museum on the banks of the River Clyde. I was really impressed, the exhibitions are fantastic and are far more interactive than the previous Transport Museum. We took the children with and they had a great time using the touch screens to find out more about the vintage cars etc. The highlight for my son was the South African Steam Train. You can also venture onto the Tall Ship Glenlee (for a fee).
