A day out to visit Glasgow... the world’s friendliest City As a wee boy, aged 10, I was hoisted high above the crowds in St. George’s Square, while the whole world, it seemed, celebrated Victory in Europe day. So my heart is in Glasgow. I grew up there, went to Glasgow High School and it set me up for life. Glasgow is vibrant – Gillian and I went to the Glasgow Jazz Festival a couple of years back. We stayed in the same hotel as the top stars and they played in the bar for fun until 3.00 in the morning! This is a jazz workshop I run, together with a jazz band Gillian and I are on holiday proper the moment we start up Loch Lomondside to the cottage. It is breathlessly romantic and beautiful. Stop off at Luss for tea – little highland village. Later you’ll cross the mysterious and desolate Moor of Rannoch. It looks different every time you cross. Wild life abounds, the majestic Buchaille Etive Mor mountain stands sentinel over the entrance to Glencoe itself. The winding road takes you between the forbidding mountains and ends with our tranquil bay of Kentallen.
