My Home Bakery – Eat More Cake!

My Home Bakery is wonderful. I’ve been here twice now and only stay away to try and preserve onto my waistline!

The bakery is on Hyndland Street around the border of Partick and Hyndland and has recently celebrated their 2nd birthday. It’s simple they do great coffee and great baked goods and offer this simple mantra.

They have a few seats inside and the first time I visited we were having some unseasonal Spring sunshine, so sitting inside looking out was ideal. They bake an incredible selection of cakes, pies and bread and one of my particular favourites is the chicken and bacon Farmers’ Breakfast. I could describe some of the other delights, but I think I’ll let the pictures do the talking. (They also do cakes to order, so if you have a special occasion coming up, give them a shout.

Glorious Govan!

I tweeted (@AllAboutGlasgow) a couple of weeks ago that the (free) ferry had started running from the Riverside Museum to Govan. Shortly after, my friend Liz posted on Facebook that she had taken said ferry to Govan so I asked if I could include her words and pictures as a guest blog. Happily she said yes, so here they are.

“Hopped on the free ferry at the Riverside Museum over to Govan to explore the industrial heritage of the area. Designed by Keppie, the offices of the Fairfield Ship Yards – the template of all Glasgow’s (UK and beyond) greatest shipyards – are quite magnificent. Saved from demolition through the persistence of people with vision, this is yet another example of a Glasgow hidden gem. The volunteer guide who took the small group of us on a guided tour was clearly passionate about his subject. Check out the website and pay a visit.”

Thanks to Liz for this. I love the way that the ferry links Partick and Govan. As well as the Fairfield Ship Yards, a visit to Old Govan Parish Church to see the Govan Stones which date from the 9th-11th centuries is a must.
