Paddy and Plunkett in Fortwilliam - H Crawford/CrawCrafts Beasties

Scotland Bound with Paddy and Plunkett!

Hello there Beastie friends! As promised, Paddy and Plunkett have hit the open road again, in search of Beastie-sized adventure! Although, since they’re on their way to Scotland, their journey really begins on a stretch of open water…
Beasties Take the Boat - CrawCrafts BeastiesHmmm… There is a lot of water around. It’s coming down from the sky too, by the looks of things. Hopefully it won’t rain for their entire trip!

Fortunately, the lads outran the clouds, and left them behind on the other side of the Irish Sea. They were glad to hop on a bus without getting their paws wet…

Glasgow is the most populous city in Scotland, and was considered by many to be the “second city” of the British Empire during its heyday in the Victorian era. Although the city was hit hard by the decline of the heavy industries (especially shipbuilding) upon which its fortunes were built, it has bounced back in recent years. It’s earned a reputation as a centre of culture and style, while its industrial past makes it an interesting place to visit – for both humans and Beasties!

This was only supposed to be a brief stopover, but that didn’t stop the lads from getting to know some of the locals.

“Where are we actually going, Plunkett?”

Wait a sec – did you not check where the train was heading before you boarded?!

Apparently not. But the Beasties’ haphazard approach to holidaying usually works out just fine.

“Yes, Paddy – not bad at all, is it?”

I’ll reveal where the terrible twosome landed in the next post… But if you think you already know, be sure to share your guesses in the comments!

See you next week!
