Day 3: Cosmopolitan and great Glasgow!
Regions: Glasgow City!
After a day off we will continue to show you the essence of the legendary Scotland!. Today we take you to Glasgow, which was the second most powerful city of the British Empire in the Victorian era given its industry and population. Today it is still the most populated city in Scotland, doubling Edinburgh in inhabitants in terms of its metropolitan area or "Greater Glasgow" passing the million two hundred thousand inhabitants, the city as such enjoys half of this population. Glasgow, although it is a cosmopolitan city like Edinburgh, is not so much, being the feeling and pride of being Scottish more rooted in general in this great city than in the capital and of more open and simple people given its industrial character. Some of the most important international companies in Scotland are based in Glasgow, but today, we are going to take you to the oldest and most important buildings in the capital and which gave their origin as such. We will visit the Glasgow cathedral, standing and of an impressive Gothic style later from the year 1136 !. Along with it, we will visit the Glasgow Necropolis, established in 1832, it houses 50.000 of the city's most prominent personalities. Another of the jewels of Glasgow is its University; we are talking about real treasures! The University of Glasgow was opened in 1451, 1582th century. Of marked European character like that of Edinburgh, it is the fourth oldest in the English-speaking world, being that of Edinburgh the sixth (year XNUMX) from which notable students as writers emerged; Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stvenson or Alexander Graham Bell inventor of the telephone among others. The oldest of the Scottish universities is The University of St. Andrews (year 1410) and the third oldest in the entire English-speaking world, here the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge studied among other famous historical figures. If we put together these three universities that we will show you, you have the reason for the significant percentage of Writers and Inventors as well as such famous actors from Scotland in a country as sparsely populated as it is today around five and a half million inhabitants. Returning to the University of Glasgow we take you to the courtyards where scenes from the famous saga have also been filmed Harry Potter such as the interior of Hogwarts castle or scenes from the famous television series about Jacobite Scotland Outlander. Well, following our day in Glasgow we will also visit the famous Kelvingrove art gallery which is the most visited museum in all of Great Britain after the museum in London. We will also bring you closer to River clyde where some of the most important shipyards in the world were located and where the ships were built as the most outstanding among others: The "Queen Elizabeth 2", the "Queen Mary" or the "RMS Lucania", shipyards still in operation. We will see the central square of Glasgow "George Square" and city hall. As you see a lot of activity and really historical and important visits today also to know the most populated city in Scotland. We return and we take you to your apartment or to enjoy the magical night of Edinburgh!

Investigating the Palace or walking along its lake we are going to enjoy an incredible morning but, following in the footsteps of “Mary Queen of Scots”, we arrive at Stirling, antigua and proud capital of Scotland. Here took place the two most important battles to preserve the independence of Scotland as a nation, "The Battle of Stirling Bridges”In 1297 defeating the English troops of Edward I by the Scots with William Wallace to the front and "The Battle of Bannockburn", In 1314 with the King of Scotland Robert the Bruce at the head of his troops and in which he defeated the English army of Edward II. As you can feel, we are visiting a truly historic part of Scotland. In the Stirling castle was crowned "Queen of Scots" Mary Stuart when she was less than a year old, and since this castle was the stronghold for Robert The Bruce's army during the misnamed Wars of Scottish Independence, let's look into it!
Well, incredible and historic day so far, but we still have a lot of experiences to live and enjoy. Do you know the television series "Outlander"And"Game of Thrones“?, We are also going to visit the Doune Castle, loved by the camera appears in several TV movies and series, today we are here too!

But this is not all; do you know why the flag of Scotland? It is the cross of San Andrés, taken by the arrival of the relics of this apostle in the XNUMXth century to the town of St. Andrews that bears his name and where Golf was born! Here we visit the ruins of its imposing Cathedral and Castle!. After all these beautiful and cultural visits we have not finished far from it!

Spectacular day today too, perhaps the most romantic and bucolic route in all of Scotland!

We are going to try to find its shy inhabitant "Nessie”On the way to its also famous and old castle since some of the rocks date back to the year 600 Urquhart! Here we disembark, in the castle itself to search for its most hidden secrets. Surely you have heard the word "Caledonian”Name given by the Romans to this middle area of the Scottish Highlands which they could not conquer given the fierceness with which its inhabitants the Celts Picts defended it and the climate of that time. Well, we traveled along the Channel that bears his name; "The Caledonian Canal”And that communicates for small boats and pleasure yachts the Scottish North Sea with the Atlantic Ocean across all of Scotland! We visit their locks in Fort Augustus and its beautiful lakes like the Loch Lochy! The capital of outdoor sports; Fort William at the foot of Snow Mountain (Ben Nevis) and the famous Valley of Tears: Glen coe, we will tell you his story of course.
