Glasgow Mural Trail

A few years ago the City of Glasgow developed a programme that allowed artists to create large works of art on walls that were unappealing and gloomy and often in areas where the overall appearance was a bit tired and dull.  Some of the works are permanent and others are temporary.  There are many of them and there`s a suggested walking route to see them all.  You can learn more at:

Glasgow Revisited

I first visited Glasgow in the spring of 1977; 41 years plus.  I've been to Scotland many times but I've never spent a whole lot of time in Glasgow.

This is Glasgow Cathedral photographed from the slopes of the Necropolis to the east. It was dedicated in 1136 and looks, part from having been cleaned, pretty much as I remember it in 1977.

Wikipedia has this to say about this historic building:

'The title cathedral is honorific and historic, dating from the period before the Scottish Reformation and its former status as the Roman Catholic mother church of the Archdiocese of Glasgow and thus the cathedra of the Archbishop of Glasgow (which is now in St. Andrew's Cathedral, the present mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Glasgow). The current congregation is part of the Church of Scotland's Presbytery of Glasgow. Glasgow Cathedral is located north of High Street and east of Cathedral Street, beside the Glasgow Royal Infirmary.
