Scotland's pubs and bars set to go all out for Commonwealth Games
Date Posted: 07/07/14
With the Commonwealth Games kicking off in Glasgow later this month, there's never been a better time to head north of the border and discover both the sporting and cultural heritage that Scotland has to offer.
To help visitors do this, pubs and bars across the country have teamed up to create a fantastic campaign which aims to ensure everyone gets into the spirit of things.
Entitled Scotland's Pubs and Bars: A Story to Tell, the initiative will see special events held at venues throughout Scotland. For example, the Bon Accord in Glasgow will be hosting a real ale festival for the duration of the Games, with all beers included being from Scotland.
Elsewhere, the City Walls in Sterling will be going all out in support of local boy Ross Murdoch, who is one of Team Scotland's top swimmers and will be hoping to get on the podium.
Whatever events you hope to see at the Commonwealth Games, stopping into one of the many bars taking part in this initiative is sure to add something special to your sporting city break in Glasgow.
