There's a good choice of light meals and snacks with some vegetarian options available too. There are breakfasts (served all day I think), macaroni cheese, lasagne, scampi, baked potatoes, burgers (including vegetarian), hot rolls, toasties, soup + sandwich deal, and more. I opted for a baked potato with cheese and coleslaw and it must be the most substantial one I've ever had - a huge potato with a mountain of cheese and coleslaw on top, plus an imaginative side salad with really gorgeous dressing, and crisps - a very hearty meal and excellent value. My husband loved his sandwiches and said they tasted really fresh and delicious.
The coffees are good (there's a great choice of drinks, both hot and cold) and there are lovely desserts and cakes - seen behind glass at the counter. At present you can choose a 'Winter Special' which consists of any of the cakes with coffee, tea or hot chocolate for only £2.80. You can also have a bowl of their famous 'award-winning' ice cream.
There's a wooden floor and attractive blue and cream decor. The soft background music was very varied as the radio was tuned to a local station. I shall give a 5 star rating because the food was so good and the service was friendly. If I have any gripe at all it's that the tables are too close together and, as a result, it had an overcrowded 'feel' yesterday when nearly full. However, I shall definitely go back there for lunch the next time I'm in Largs!
Millport, Highlands and Islands KA28 0
I have read that this is identical in design to the Newton Mearns War Memorial in Glasgow by the same sculptors.
There was a re-dedication ceremony at the memorial in May 2012.
I have seen this memorial many times on visits to the island but without knowing many details until I read about it recently.
Cardiff, Wales CF5 6SU
Surprisingly, it was once used as a police training centre, and then, until 1996, for conferences. After this, in 2007, the Vale of Glamorgan Council gave £1.4 million to renovate the walls and roof, and, in 2012 the house began to be fully restored. It is due to finally open to the public in March 2013.
Until a short while ago, when I left Wales, my husband and I used to often visit the formal gardens in front of Dyffryn House in the spring and summer. It's a pity the house wasn't open to the public then but I'm delighted to hear that it should be soon!
Roath, Cardiff, Wales
Captain Scott’s expedition to the Antarctic set out from Roath Dock in 1910 aboard the ship Terra Nova. Cardiff was chosen as the departure point owing to the huge contribution of the city to the expedition’s financing.
This relationship was also responsible for the elegant Scott Memorial at the south end of Roath Park Lake. The lake was emptied in 1914 so that foundations for the tower could be built. It was completed in 1915 and in 1918 it was officially presented to the Cardiff.
The plaque on the promenade side of the Memorial reads:
To the memory of
Captain R. F. Scott C.V.O. D.S.O. , R.N.
and his faithful companions
Captain L. E. G. Oates, Lieut. H. R. Bowers R.I.M.,
Dr. E. A. Wilson and Petty Officer Edgar Evans R.N.
who sailed in the S.S. Terra Nova from the Port of Cardiff
June 15th 1910, to locate the South Pole; and, in pursuit of
that great and successful scientific task, laid down their
lives in the Antarctic Regions. March 1912.
“Britons all, and very gallant gentlemen”.
Erected and presented to the City of Cardiff by
F. C. Bowring Esq., J.P.

This bronze cherub is the work of Kenny Hunter and was installed in 1998 at the corner of the Tron Theatre. In fact, it was added at the same time as the theatre underwent renovations. I think it's a very clever work but can't honestly say it's one of my favourite sculptures in the city.
Apparently, there is a skull at the rear of the building which is related to this statue; one represents birth and the other death. Some say it echoes the rebirth of the theatre on the site of the old church.
Cornmill Square, Galashiels, Scotland TD1 1
The building is mainly used as the burgh chambers and the rest of it houses the council offices. I can't write much about the interior as I haven't been inside but I have read it is very beautiful (fine entrance hall, quality timber panelling, decorative wrought iron work, painted panel depicting the town motto, 'Sour Plums', brass ram light fittings and a mural of Pan). The basement was once used as a police station and apparently some evidence of the cells remains.
My photo was taken from the guest house where we stayed a while ago - really a lovely view of the Burgh Chambers from there and some of the attractive surrounding countryside.
