Carlton George Hotel to the Van Pick Up Site

The Carlton George Hotel has many wonderful features with one of them being that it is smack in the center of Glasgow.  It makes it very easy to get to on public transportation.  BUT the streets around the hotel makes it hard for the van to get near the door to pick you up.  The closest pickup spot is 2 blocks away.   You will need to walk to the pickup location.

Fortunately, you’ll be in Glasgow for a couple of days before the tour starts so you can familiarize yourself with the lay of the land.  And when I was there I took pictures and video to help you.  First let’s start with a map.
