A lovely spire. Glasgow University claimed it contains a helter skelter, but that alas is an April fool.

Seen this loads of times prior to trig bagging. Behind scaffolding today.

Covered in scaffolding at the moment, but usually one of the most beautiful items in the Glasgow skyline.

WHW#1: To Glasgow to walk the West Highland Way. Very nice walk through Kelvingrove Park - wonderful architecture, although spire currently largely encased in scaffolding. En route to the Ubiquitous Chip for an excellent dinner. How Scottish cuisine has improved since my year in Edinburgh, 1981, when peppers were virtually unheard of!

As viewed from our Youth Hostel window. Gothic bell tower on Gilmorehill, part of the 1870 expansion. Spire added 1887.

I was once up on a roof very close to here. Doing a condition survey on the telecoms mast on an adjacent building. Took a wee stroll past today on the way to the canal path.

Did not realise more than 30 years ago when I was a student at Glasgow University that the building had other purposes apart from Education!
