Friday 8th July 2016


As predicted, the wet weather was on us today.

We headed to the wine region of Rutherglen, staying mainly in the car, doing the tourist drive. We checked out the Pfeiffer Winery (which we went to about 18 years ago), All Saints Estate, & stopped for lunch at the Calico Town vineyard, which also sells Wicked Virgin Olive Oil products. The wines with lunch were nice, as was the hearty soup, but what they did with the Scotch Egg was a mystery; it was VERY average!

The rain continued so we called it a day, hibernating inside Bertie for the afternoon & evening.

The Victoria Hotel in Rutherglen; it was once a mortuary & stables.
The original wooden building that once stood here dated from 1894

Not usually a huge topic of conversion, the soup at Calico Town was bloody good!
