Southern Scotland, especially Glasgow

LulusMom | May 31, 201305:15 AM     38

Hi, We'll be touring southern Scotland with Glasgow as our base next month. My husband knows Glasgow well since he does work there about 4-5 times a year. I'd like to surprise him with something new and great and comfortable. We'll have our restaurant-friendly 7 year old daughter along. I don't eat red meat (which I have not found to be a problem in Scotland) but am otherwise up for any types of food and we're willing to pay for great food in a comfortable setting (not stuffy). We love all kinds of food, but are especially looking for nice gastro-pub type places. That said, after 10 days I'm sure we'll want something a bit different: Asian, Italian, anything spicy. I'm also thinking of trying to find a nice place to take him out to tea for Fathers Day (last year we happened to be in York and went to Betty's, which was wonderful). In addition to Glasgow we'll likely be stopping in Sterling, Edinburgh, St. Andrews, East Neuk, and the area around the Border Abbeys. If you know of any gems there we'd love to hear about them. In Glasgow we'll be staying right across from the Botanical gardens so something close to that would be especially great (although it would also be more likely that he knows it already). Thanks very much in advance for any help you can give us.
