Next problem...there are a lot of KIA's here ;o). After pressing on the remote control several times we finally found it.
It was the first time I had to drive myself on the left side...I didn't panic, but I was a bit nervous. Not only that in Scotland everyone is driving "on the wrong side of the road", no, even the direction indicator and the windscreen wiper are mirror-inverted.
At home I have printed the description from the Airport to our hotel...as I already told, it was my first time driving on the left. We got totally lost and came out on the international Airport of Glasgow *lol*.
I went inside looking for the HERTZ desk, maybe I can get a GPS. Miracle!!! They got one AND in 5 days it has to be at the Airport in Edinburgh, that's just perfect.
3 hours after landing in Glasgow we finally made it to our hotel. On the route description which I printed at home, it says 20 minutes *lol*
After having a horrible pizza from a small shop around the corner of the hotel we went to bed for our first night in Scotland.
We woke up around 8 o'clock, checked out, left our luggage at the reception and went downtown with the public bus. 10 minutes later we were at the main railway station and started exploring the city.
To be honest: We didn't like Glasgow very much. I can't tell you even why. It was just a...feeling. But, what we enjoyed in Glasgow was the ride with the tube (I guess it's not built for tall people like me - almost 2 metres *lol*) and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. We spent almost 3 hours inside.
After the visit of the museum we searched for the right bus to get back to our hotel and continued to explore Scotland.
