All cathedrals are magnificent and this is too but what surprised us was the inside - lots of 'churches' in one as there are places of worship on the lower levels too. Well worth a visit - free to enter but a suggested donation of £2 is more than reasonable to me.

Grand building with much history, even it's own tartan. Very old tombs and nice surrounding area. Impressed by the cemetery higher up just behind the building and space in front in the shade to stop for a snack.

Glasgow Cathedral (also called the High Kirk of Glasgow, St Kentigern's or St Mungo's Cathedral) is beautiful! Lots of stained glass windows, war memorials (from the 1800s-WWII) and military colours, etc to look at along with the architecture itself.

When settled by Mungo and some followers, the knoll was already at the heart of a small community who called themselves the village of Descu. Mungo wrote to Rome to inform the Bishop of that City...

I have lived in Glasgow all my life and this was my first visit to this wonderful Cathedral, it was a fabulous experience and I wil be back. I loved the private chapel where you can pray and place notes.
