Known for its glassmaking industry, Alloa is a small town with an impressive artistic heritage. Situated in the surrounding county of Clackmannanshire, it is thought of as the ‘artistic centre’ of Scotland. The existence of the Alloa Makers Village reflects this notion; a centre which supports and encourages local artisans and creative people, showing that the members and local inhabitants of the town are keeping this tradition alive today.
Art is found in abundance throughout Alloa. The work of internationally renowned sculptor Andy Scott is displayed in the town, including sculptures located in Station Square and on Shillinghill Roundabout.
In the spirit of the town’s creative mindset, going on a date in Alloa could be your chance to be both imaginative and original. First dates are important for making a good initial impression as well as showing off different elements of your personality. Here are some ideas for a first date in Alloa, geared to showcase your artistic side...
1. Paint a perfect picture Situated on North Castle Street, Resonate Arts House has a number of arty offerings you could suggest as a first date activity. Fancy yourself as a painter, photographer, or even an embroiderer? There are a whole host of different workshops on throughout the week and any one of them would get your creative juices flowing. Painting a portrait of your date might be a romantic thing to do if you’re feeling confident – just remember to air on the side of flattery...
2. Follow the castle trail. Beginning with Alloa Tower, the area’s castle trail is a great way to explore some local history. Not only will you become absorbed in the architecture, but the craft fairs that are often held in conjunction with the trail would provide an enjoyable way of appreciating some modern local art. You could even buy your date a small gift at one of the stalls as a romantic and thoughtful end to the day.
. Wet your whistle Wine tasting is a great option for a fun date! Being a small town, you might not be able to find such an event in Alloa itself, but in nearby Glasgow you are pretty much guaranteed to. Not only will you get the opportunity to learn a thing or two about your favourite tipple, but wine tasting also lends itself to a general relaxed and jovial atmosphere which would be perfect for getting rid of any first date jitters (even though technically you’re not supposed to swallow the wine, but we won’t tell if you don’t follow the rules....).
