This morning, I visited Queen’s Park in the south side of Glasgow which provides commanding views over the surrounding area.

The area is rich in history with evidence going back to the Iron Age. However, key claim to fame is the 1568 Battle of Langside where Mary Queen of Scots suffered a defeat.

The current park was laid out 1857-1862 to a design by Sir Joseph Paxton (of Crystal Palace, London fame).

Key reason for visit this morning was to use the vantage point to photograph Glasgow. Below is a video clip showing the centre of Glasgow with the Campsie Fells (hills) in the distance.
