Scotland was recently voted the most beautiful country ever (or something like that) and we believe it’s because the voters all visited Loch Lomond. You only have to drive but an hour out of Glasgow (1.5 from Edinburgh) to get into the most breathtaking scenery you ever did see! Rent a car, be prepared to drive on some crazy, single-lane, windy roads, and get ready for the road trip of all road trips!

Welcome to Unlocking Glasgow! Part 2 of our 3-part tour of Scotland…Edinburgh was last week 😉

Having spent my “formative” years living in Glasgow from age 14 to 20, we would definitely be making the city of style part of our Unlocking Scotland tour! Outside of London, Glasgow is home to some of the best shopping in the UK. And for foodies, they have quite the gastronomic and bar scene going on. Here’s 9 hours in Glasgow, and five stops you should definitely hop-off on the “Hop-On Hop-Off” bus tour!

Ahhh, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars (not to be confused with Stags’ Leap Winery). For Cabernet lovers like me, you know this one’s a winner. If you’ve seen the movie Bottleshock, you know the Judgment of Paris. And if you don’t, Stag’s Leap’s 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon, the vineyard’s first commercial crop, shocked the wine world when it won first place among ten top French and California red wines in a blind taste test by leading French wine experts in the Paris tasting.
