Wall Mural, High Street, Glasgow

Today, guests availed of a ‘free day’ in Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city. I took the opportunity of a photography themed tour bus ride around the key sites the results of which can be seen on this page.

Glasgow is located on the banks of the River Clyde in the South West of Scotland. The city is Scotland’s largest with a population of about 600,000 and a history dating back about 1500 years to the time of St. Mungo, the Patron Saint of Glasgow.

The city’s early prosperity arose from tobacco trading in the 18th century and then moved on to heavy manufacturing, notably shipbuilding, and other trading activities which generated substantial wealth and led the city to aspire to status as ‘second city of the (British) Empire’. Benefiting from this long history and heritage coupled with modern architecture and a vibrant culture Glasgow has much to offer the visitor via a wide range of tour themes.
