Sail away

The celebrations and endless action-packed days may be over. But don’t let that stop you from soaking up the remaining sunshine and sailing away. Because who needs sand and sea when you can have your own adventure on a ship in the comfort of this great city.

Tall Ship at Riverside Museum in GlasgowI explored the Riverside Museum many times before but I’d always overlooked the Tall Ship parked out back. How or why – well I’m not too sure. But the main thing is I finally got on-board.

Yes the weather is getting a little more crisp but don’t let that stop you. Wrap up and discover all the nooks and crannies. There are many.

Swab the deck and soak up the sun

From the captains quarters – complete with very cute tub – to swabbing the deck and investigating the inner bowels of the boat, it’s all pretty amazing.

And if you meet the pirate your dreams, you can even get married on the ship. Marvellous!

On a clear blue day the view from the upper deck is nothing short of mesmerising. Oh – and it’s all free. Or if you make a small donation, you get a guide all about the Ship.

So go on, have ahoy of a time.
