A day at the UNESCO site in Scotland.


Today's activities is visiting Scotland latest UNESCO heritage site, New Lanark World Heritage Site. 
Return ticket from Glasgow Central is £7.50 which took around an hour. Arrived at Lanark Station, you can choose either to take £1.45 for a 10min bus or just take a walk and enjoy the scenery of the town for less than 30min. 
Crazy us waiting for the train at Glasgow Central. 
I always find church buildings in Scotland interesting and have the touch of ancient. Not sure of the correct architectural term.. But oh well, i'm an engineering student. What do you expect. Haha. 
There's a retail park near the Lanark station. This picture is taken on our way to the site. Nice view right? 😁
Another building that catch my attention. Abandon school.

There's a sign saying this way to the school. Who want to go all the way up there? Haha not me. Well.. Not this time. 😁
Oh yaa.. Here's the bus if you are lazy to walk all the way from the train station. But be warned, most of the passagers are elders. Shame on you! 😅
