Gothic Cathedral oldest building in Glasgow full of history but poorly lit in many parts. Free to visit but donations accepted. Could do with a coffee shop as it is 20/25 minute uphill walk from the city centre. The famous Glasgow Necropolis is set behind...More

I recently showed French friends round the Cathedral. It is obviously a popular attraction because it was crowded with people from many nationalities, speaking many languages. It is interesting to see how the transition between denominations of Christianity is explained. The cathedral has been the...More

In winter, this magnificent building looks all the more impressive. Some stained glass windows and stonework to compete with the best of cathedrals and without the arrogance. Wonderful and beautiful place to visit.
