Scottish Gothic Cathedral, Glasgow

Scottish Gothic Cathedral, Glasgow, Scotland

 This evening, I am following yesterday’s theme with further illustrations of Glasgow’s rich architectural heritage.
 
Above is the 13th century Cathedral which was designed in Scottish Gothic style. This place of worship started as Roman Catholic and is now Presbyterian. It is very unusual in that it managed to survive the upheavals of the 1560 Reformation without suffering significant physical damage.
 
In the image below we move to neo-Gothic style as demonstrated in the 1904 design of St. Columba Church, this being the work of Tennant and Burke.  This Presbyterian Church provides for worship in both English and Gaelic.
