Day 6 - Inverbeg to Motherwell

A fairly easy day today, mostly on cycle paths, down Loch Lomond, then along the river to Dumbarton then into Glasgow. Weather OK in the morning, but rain showers again in the afternoon.

After updating the blog at Glasgow Library, we made our way back to the riverside and followed the riverside path eastwards, past the Celtic ground at Parkhead (site of a famous Forest victory in the 1984 UEFA Cup), to eventually emerge at Uddingston, where it was a short ride on the road to reach our overnight stop at the Inkeeper's Lodge at Strathclyde Park, just off the M74 motorway. We had asked for a ground floor room, but didn't get one, so had to lug the bikes up the stairs, as they were being kept in our room overnight.

We ate at the Toby Carvery next to the hotel, where I had an "eat as much as you like" Chicken Curry and Sue had Roast Beef, before retiring to bed.
