Let's visit West Kilbride - Saturday 4th October 2014

Postby poodiecat » Sun Sep 14, 2014 1:02 pm

West Kilbride - who knew?

It's Scotland's first Craft Town.
It has a library with lovely librarians and old photies, and a museum with old stuff.
Old buildings, too, quite a few in fact.
Stunning views across Ayrshire and Arran, palm trees, a sandy beach, a pub or two and even a pie shop.

But most of all it is very peaceful, quiet and relaxing.

Meet at Glasgow Central under the clock at 10:30 to catch the train at 10:48, arriving in West Kilbride at 11:32.
It's the Glasgow - Largs line and it will stop at Paisley, Gilmour Street, too.

As always, everyone is welcome Image :D

If time and energy permit, a trip to Portencross is recommended.
I hear the people sing.

Sadly doomed not to get to West Kilbride. The wee night out I was going to turns out to be a black tie ball, starting at 6 :cry:

Looking forward to it. Is it a black tie affair?
Yes Bridie, you do.

We would invite you, but it's south of the river, sorry. :D

I should hopefully make my comeback for this one if I can manage to remember to get the day off work

I am up for this too. Fully fit again after what should be the final surgery of a longstanding problem. It is such a lovely area.

I've only a vague idea where it is but I'll be there. West Kilbride, that is.

It is beautiful. I was there very recently.
