I took a trip to the island of Iona off of Scotland for a few days. On my way back, a friend recommended that I stay my last night in Glasgow at the Carlton George Hotel. I got off the train and was easily able to find my way to the hotel (in the rain). When I walked in the door, I was greeted by a beautiful old fireplace with a warming fire, and tartan plaid chairs. Two young men at the front desk quickly checked me in. They were polite, yet formal. My room was very "Scotland". I loved the red tartan plaid decor displayed in these pictures. It was small but perfectly comfortable. I could not believe the red plaid tiles around the bathtub! There was a corner shelf with crystal goblets and decanters; one each of scotch, gin, vodka. I helped myself (per the sign on the shelf) to a bit of scotch and relaxed after my travel. I had a fun dinner out with two friends around the corner at the local pub, and a restful night prior to my flight back to America the next morning. The guys at the desk arranged for a cab to pick me up promptly and take me to the airport. It was a lovely little boutique hotel and a great finish to my trip. It was a bit expensive, but worth it for the location convenience, experience, and memories.
