Didn’t know what to expect but enjoyed the Charles Rennie McIntosh house and the information given by the personnel on duty there, also by the gentleman in the gallery. An impressive collection.

After the wonders of the Kelvingrove we found this a little disappointing. I thought the subject to Dr William Hunter was just to esoteric. I am sure he made a major contribution to medicine but but the subject was just to specialist for me.

Sorry I don't know the answer. I was only in Glasgow 2 days last month on a short break. I do not live there and so do not keep up to date on what's on.

Not sure since we didn't actually go to the show but it should be worth it as Scottish comics are great eg the Beano and the Dandy,
