River Clyde, Glasgow

River Clyde, Glasgow at night

 

This evening, the focus of my blog is Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city with a population of just under 600,000.

Glasgow attracts over one million each year but perhaps not all appreciate the wide variety of history, heritage and culture which can be encountered here. Places to visit and connect with include:

  • A 13th century Cathedral which, unusually, escaped the worst ravages of the Reformation virtually unscathed.
  • A Necropolis (City of the Dead) populated with some extremely grand memorials to the great and the good of the Victorian era.
  • Charles Rennie Mackintosh design and architecture.
  • Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson architecture.
  • Govan Old Church with its unique collection of over 30 elaboratelycarved stones from the 9th and 10th centuries AD.
  • Fascinating  modern architecture around the River Clyde
  • Gardens such as Greenbank.
  • The famous Burrell Collection.
  • Crookston Castle
  • A herd of (very photogenic)  Highland Cattle.
  • George Square in the city centre. Enjoy High Tea and the view.
  • Scotch Whisky making at Auchentoshan Distillery
