Burrell Collection

The last few days in Scotland have been a mixture of catching up with people and, well, drinking. Yesterday Colin and I went off to find the Burrell Collection and after a quick look at the map decided to walk there as it seemed so close (maps do that sometimes). We arrived two hours later after getting fairly lost. It's a collection of over 9000 pieces of art originally owned by a big industrialist who brought it back from all over the world and it's fairly impressive, housed in a gallery on the Pollock Estate (that's country estate not housing estate). Still, I'm sure we didn't find 9000 pieces there before we retired to the cafe and tried to figure out how to get back.

Here's some of the photos from the last couple of weeks in Britain.
