Ayr - Glasgow & the Burrell Collection (full day)

Travelling northeast from Ayr brings you to Glasgow. First, head into the center of Glasgow for a panoramic tour. Renowned as one of the most dynamic and exciting cities in the U.K., it combines the sophistication of a major European cultural capital with the history, heritage and scenic splendor of Scotland.

Then drive through to the outskirts of Glasgow to visit the Burrell Collection, one of the world's most famous art collections. It is a treasure trove of more than 8,000 items ranging from ancient civilisation to the Impressionist period. The wide-ranging collection of objets d'art forming the Burrell Collection was bequeathed to the city by millionaire shipping magnate Sir Alexander Burrell in 1944. Burrell's eclectic tastes are represented by European tapestries, Chinese jade, French Impressionist paintings, Persian rugs, medieval stained glass-and even whole rooms brought here from Burrell's former home, the 16th century Hutton Castle.
