Glasgow, home of XX Commonwealth Games

With the 17 different sports in this year's Commonwealth Games, there will be something for everyone's cup of tea in Glasgow.

Commonwealth Games have been an international tradition every four years since 1930. This wonderful event has been hosted by 18 cities in seven different countries all over the world, including Canada, Australia, Malaysia, India and, of course, our own United Kingdom.

Commencing in July, the XX Commonwealth Games is going to be the main source of many other events, such as The Big Big Sing, which invites those interested to join in and sing along up until and during the Games. Another big surprise for Glasgow's visitors will be GRIT, an ambitious new theatre production based on the inspiring life and music of one of Scotland's most innovative and influential musicians. Those are just some of the events taking place during the games and there are plenty more to come.

This year's sports include Aquatics, Athletics, Badminton Squash and Table Tennis, Lawn Bowls, Netball and Gymnastics, for bike fans there's the Cycling and the Triathlon as well. Shooting is also included. And for the more adrenaline seeking visitors there's plenty of choice as well - Boxing, Hockey, Judo, Rugby Sevens, Shooting, Wrestling and Weightlifting.

If interested, take a look at the Games' website -
And, of course, if you decide to visit Glasgow during this event, rooms at the Argyll Hotel will be opened in early January. Give us a call on 01413373313 or send us an e-mail to

Red Nose Day at Argyll Hotel

Red Nose Day was celebrated at Argyll Hotel

We did not have a concert with One Direction and we did not shave our heads but we tried to amuse our guests and had a few raffles to raise money for children from UK and Africa.

A Dinner for two at Sutherlands Restaurant was offered for our raffle and all the money raised has been donated.

For the members we sold £1 tickets to a raffle where half of the money went to the winner and half were donated.

We also sold red noses, T-shirts and had a "Casual Friday" for the Comic Relief.

We are proud to know that a tiny contribution, from those 75 million pounds raised, was the results of our activities.

Many thanks for all the support and donations!
