This evening, my blog theme is Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Lighthouse in Glasgow. First, however, will address other topical matters of the day:

Glasgow Weather: Dry and mild. As I write this I am witnessing a stunning and vibrant sunset.

Glasgow Ancestry: Just posted information to my separate blog on the Sommerville family from information obtained at Glasgow’s Necropolis.

Tours of Scotland: Finalising formalities with a hotel on Isle of Skye re a group tour for September.

Website: Just completed re-vamping two of the older web pages. More to follow!

Mackintosh Architecture: This evening’s theme is the Lighthouse in Mitchell Lane which dates from 1893-1895. Was previously known as the Glasgow Herald Building and is now a centre for architecture and design with a section on Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The image above shows the helical staircase (126 steps) leading to the top of the tower where there is a viewpoint affording magnificent views across the city of Glasgow.
