1984 Scotland postcard from HH, Jean -Oct.2

First thought was that this postcard was mailed from Glasgow on 20th or 21st of October 1984.  But history tells us that the ElderHostel trip in the British Isles ended in early October as a trip to Michigan and Canada with the Goodings took place before mid-October 1984.  

Scotland postcard mailed 1984. Captioned: Scotland contains a variety of scenery and interest unsurpassed anywhere in the British Isles.  It is a land famous for its rolling hills and beautiful fishing rivers, colourful little towns and villages, long sea lochs and picturesque harbours.  Between the Firths of Clyde and Forth lie Scotland's splendid capital, Edinburgh, and its commercial capital, Glasgow.  Many towns such as Linlithgow and Stirling are reminders of Scotland's stormy history for centuries.

[10/2/84 postmarked]
[Written by HH]  Dear Morgans - Thanks for your 2nd letter to us in Europe.  We know your library job hunt will have a happy ending.  The libraries here are very nice.  Met two women who went to Pullman to college but said they don't have any "pull" there now.  Will be interested in seeing the books recommended in "A Lifetime Reading."
[Written by Jean]  At least 3 men in our group are going up Sunday to St. Andrews to see the British National.  Am sure Uncle Bill would have if he had the chance.  Really appreciate your letter – you've been most faithful.  Did get letter from G'ma here.  Anxious to hear about interview.  Much love, Dad & Mother.
