From Hotel California to Hotel Turnberry was the transition when The Eagles landed in Ayrshire in May 1977.

The band posed for an exclusive picture with the Gazette - left to right - Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Don Felder, Glen Frey and Randy Meisner.

The world famous group flew from Glasgow in their private jet before and after their two sell-out concerts at Glasgow Apollo on Saturday and Sunday. They were accompanied at the hotel by a 54-strong entourage connected with the band.

In late 1976 the band released the Hotel California album with the title track and New Kid In Town riding high in the charts.
