Trip Report Four quick Scotland recommendations

Full trip report to follow, but we were so impressed with these businesses, I felt quick feedback was important.

Nawab Indian Restaurant, 50 Upper Criags, Stirling, (at the bottom of the hill near the shopping area, easy walk from train/ bus station) Admittedly, I don't know what you have to do to find a bad Indian food in the UK. But this was the best Indian food I've had anywhere. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive. Full menu of meat and vegan dishes.

Clachaig Inn, GlenCoe. You gotta love a hotel that has its' own whiskey label. The Inn itself is a destination, never mind how unspeakably beautiful Glen Coe was. The setting is unique (cycle and hiker friendly) and the busy bar and food service was well managed with prompt, friendly service.

The Townhouse B&B, Marshall Place, Perth. Perth is a great place to use as a base for exploring the Southern Highlands, with Fife and St Andrews an easy drive. The Townhouse was an excellent value with upscale breakfasts and large luxurious rooms for the reasonable price. Inn keeper David takes personal interest to ensure ones plans are well mapped out for a the day.

Saramago Cafe. (Inside a facility called the Center for Contemporary Art) 350 Sauchiehall St,(west of center) Glasgow. All-Vegan, but good enough that die-hard meat eaters can get excited eating there. If you are veggie/vegan and touring Scotland, this is a must - do culinary experience.
