Bothwell Castle - Uddingston

The mighty medieval castle of Bothwell was built on a bluff above a bend in the River Clyde. Building was started by Walter of Moray some time in the latter half of the 1200s. Invasion and repeated siege meant that the original design of the castle was never completed and what you see today is largely the work of the Earls of Douglas in the years around 1400. Bothwell Castle is roughly rectangular in shape. Its west end is occupied by the remains of the massive circular donjon or keep. The east end of the castle comprises the great hall and the south east tower. The angle behind the great hall was, until about 1700, home to the north east tower, a large square tower built in about 1400 to replace the siege-damaged donjon and considerably taller than the surviving south east tower. Only its base survives.

Kittochside Museums of Scotland - Glasgow

Arriving at the car park for the Museum of Scottish Country Life at Kittochside (on the outskirts of East Kilbride in South Lanarkshire), the initial impression is not particularly favourable as the main museum building has been made to look like a farmyard barn (presumably deliberately). However, once inside, there is a bright, modern museum with excellent facilities. And there is even better outside, with a working farm and a farmhouse which is just as it was 50 years ago. The museum has a wide range of farm equipment on display and plenty of displays providing an insight into farming and the countryside. The displays are a combination of items from the National Trust and the National Museums of Scotland - the latter has brought its National Country Life Collection to Kittochside and is responsible for the management and operation of the Museum.


Celtic Football Club

Celtic Football Club, commonly referred to simply as Celtic (pronounced 'seltic') or 'the Bhoys' (pronounced 'boys'), are one of the world's most famous football clubs. Based in the Scottish city of Glasgow, in the city's east end. The club is officially nicknamed the Bhoys, or unofficially the Hoops. Together with their city rivals Rangers, they have dominated Scottish football for over 100 years as part of the Old Firm, forming one of the most famous and bitter rivalries in sport. Celtic's home kit is green and white hooped jerseys, white shorts and white socks (although it is also not uncommon for them to wear green and white hooped socks).
