Castles feature even on British summer lollies.

We docked at Greenock port in the Glasgow area on Friday morning.  After breakfast we took the bus out to Culzean Castle, about an 1 ½ hr drive to the south from Glasgow.  The castle is much more recent : 19th century, and furnished inside.  No pictures allowed inside, though.  On the way back we stopped at the town of Ayr to check out the scenery, the shopping and the Scots.   We have a day at sea on Saturday.  We have to make it down and up all the way toward the northern coast of the British Isles to reach Inverness for the next stop.
