This morning, I collected my tour group from Glasgow’s West End and proceeded as follows:

Firstly, to Glasgow’s famous 13th century Cathedral dedicated to St Mungo or St Kentigern.

Then a walk to the nearby Necropolis, 19th century burial ground of Glasgow’s business and social elite. A wide array of elaborate memorials and tombstones.

Just across the road from the Cathedral is Provand’s Lordship, Glasgow’s oldest bilding which dates from the 15th century and may originally have formed part of the medieval religious complex centred on theĀ  Cathedral.
