We are pleased to announce that this year’s St Donan’s Day dinner will be held in Glasgow on April 22nd. This is probably the first time that we have headed to the Dear Green City, the Second City of the Empire (and some slightly less generous names that the cousins in Edinburgh might use), so a clan trip is long overdue. The aim is to incorporate a little West Coast hospitality, some mercantile culture and a pinch of Glasgow ‘bling’… To that end:
- St Donan’s Day Dinner / Venue
The (black tie / highland dress) dinner will be held at the Corinthian Club at 7pm on Saturday 22 April. The price of the dinner is £58 per person and will include 2 glasses of sparkling wine, a three course dinner, coffee and half a bottle of wine.
The venue is located at 191 Ingram St, Merchant City, Glasgow G1 1DA.
- Sunday morning
We have arranged for a guided tour of the Kelvingrove Art Galleries on the Sunday morning (starting at 10am). The tour is free, however a donation of £5 per person would be much appreciated by the guides. The Kelvingrove Art Gallery houses a very fine and diverse collection of Scottish and European art, as well as paintings by the Glasgow Boys, the Scottish Colourists and C R Mackintosh. The gallery is also a particularly fine example of high Victorian architecture.
There are a number of hotels in the area including the Mercure Glasgow City hotel is just across the road from the Corinthian Club – the hotel can be contacted on (+44) 844/8159103.
Should members wish to opt for a higher-end hotel, then potential options include the Carlton George Hotel (rooms aprox. £150 per night), or the Blythswood (rooms aprox. £220 per night).
