Today, Is cold but bright sunshine. Had to do some shopping so took in Queen’s Park and environs the results of which are below.

This is the former Langside Hill Church 1895-6 and is Category ‘B’ listed. The building was designed by Alexander Skirving for the Free Church but now a bar and restaurant.Skirving was Greek Thomson’s principal assistant. The design for the church was in the classical tradition with the building placed on a large plinth and fronted by a pedimented portico supported by giant Ionic columns. A very imposing and impressive building.


Views of Glasgow from Queen’s Park looking N.W. through N.E. starting with Kilsyth Hills and Ben Lomond. Stunning views and a good day!




Here is a classical mansion house in the style of David Hamilton built in the early 1800’s.This is Camphill House. It was converted into a museum by Glasgow Corporation, the custodians of the park, in 1896.In late 1995, work was completed to convert the building into flats.



View of walks in Queen’s Park. Burnt out car looks like a work of art, but this is Glasgow!!
