A visit to Glasgow must include a visit to its magnificent cathedral. Admission is free and the history inside is overwhelming. We walked from the city center past the campus and its a pleasant walk indeed.

If you're in Glasgow take an hour to see this impressive site. Parking is available on site. Tours are available. It is also located across from Glasgow Cemetery. This area is one of the oldest sections of Glasgow.

In addition to visiting the Cathedral we also attended a service. The people were welcoming and happy to have us. Downstairs is an especially holy place with some of the oldest spots in the Cathedral.

This is a beautiful cathedral and we spent about 30-40 minutes here. The Outlander fans in the group were drawn to the parts of the cathedral used for filming of that series. There were several tour groups inside so it was a bit full when...More

This is a truly wonderful cathedral. A very grand building worth seeing. St Mungo, the patron saint of Glasgow is buried there. The attached cemetery contains the graves of the great and good of years gone by.
