We had a friend visiting last weekend and Glasgow did its absolute worst with the weather. Where could we go that was accessible by car and under cover so that we could keep dry? Given that we’d been to Glasgow’s museums many times we thought we’d try Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life at Coatbridge in North Lanarkshire. We hadn’t visited for years and now we can’t understand why we left it so long – it was great. A large Exhibition Hall with café and enough to do outside in the brief window when it didn’t rain – a replica mine and row of miners cottages to tour and a tram to ride. Hours of fun!
