Day Six was our last day in Scotland before heading back home. We started the day with a coffee and breakfast from Riverhill Coffee Bar. I finally tasted the Empire Biscuit – a cookie I had seen everywhere during the trip – and it was so delicious!

So many delicious sweets!
After breakfast we split up and Koen and I headed to the Burrell Collection in Pollock Country Park. The Burrell Collection is a private collection of eclectic artifacts and art acquired by the wealthy Glasgownian Sir William Burrell.
