    Personal Guide
Day 1: Glasgow
  • Pick up your car once you arrive to the airport.
  • In the afternoon visit Glasgow’s cathedral, also known as Saint Mungo. This gothic temple is the fourth one built on the spot where Saint Mungo built his church in the 7th century. The visit includes a stop at the University of Glasgow and the Kelvingrove Museum.

Day 2: Glasgow – New Lanark
  • Head to the UNESCO World Heritage site of New Lanark to admire the history and heritage, emerging from the travails of Welsh philanthropist and social reformer Robert Owen. Located in an impressive valley where the rushing Clyde river flows, the New Lanark cotton mills used the water’s energy for 180 years to produce cotton fabric. The settlement – which today is designated as a UNESCO world heritage site – contributed to Britain’s industrial revolution, introducing and reforming work conditions under one of the most successful socialist-led economic models that the world has seen. After lunch in New Lanark, return back to Glasgow.
  • The afternoon program in Glasgow can follow in the footsteps of Charles Rennie Mackintosh – famed Scottish architect, designer and artist – beginning with the Lighthouse, Scotland's Centre for Design and Architecture, which itself is an architectural gem built in 1893. You can also take a tour of the Glasgow School of Art, which also marks one of Mackintosh’s most notable feats.
