Brunch, Art & Doughnuts at Kelvingrove, Glasgow

It's nearly a month since our weekend in Glasgow, but I'm still drooling over thoughts of freshly made doughtnuts! If you ever ask me to choose between Glasgow and Edinburgh for a romantic weekend away, I'd usually say the latter. I always think of Glasgow as a shopping city. The infamous Style Mile is ideal for a girly weekend but not so much for my long suffering, shop hating husband. We pretty much only head down to visit family or attend gigs or fitness events. On our latest trip however, we got out of the main part of the city centre and headed West to discover another side to Scotland's largest city.

Our Sunday started off at the Hyndland Fox on Clarence Drive. Breakfast is always the best meal of the day, but even more so when it involves an epic eggs benedict! The other half enjoyed his cooked breakfast and washed it down with coffee (green tea for me!) in the comfortable surroundings of the stylish café. Highly recommend.

Afterwards, we took a short drive over to the Kelvingrove museum and art gallery. It's somewhere I've meant to visit for a long time but always thought it was further away from the city centre than it actually is. Entry is free and we enjoyed a wander around the various exhibits. The natural history collection was interesting, Gordon got excited about the suspended Spitfire while I admired the floating heads, and the "Gifts for the Gods: Animal Mummies" exhibition was a particular highlight. I was obsessed with Ancient Egypt when I was young!

If you have the time, I'd recommend heading over to nearby Tantrum Doughnuts. A stroll around Kelvingrove park was complete with a little picnic among the wildlife. Yep, even squirrels appreciate Glasgow's finest freshly baked goods! The crème brulee and PBJ doughnuts are absolutely worth indulging in. Try eating a whole one without licking your lips - I dare you!

I really enjoyed exploring more of Glasgow - where do you recommend visiting next time?
