A great place to visit. The building is very interesting with a great history. A working church which attracts a lot of visitors and has some wonderful stained glass windows and some interesting architecture. Free entry and guides available to help.

Beautiful Gothic church set among the heights of Glasgow and Tall trees. Clean and wonderful stained glassed windows and marble arch. A few Outlander scene locations from the first season. Another lesson in Scottish history.

Not to be missed. Beautiful & unbelievable. Cathedral staff very willing to answer questions. After leaving we wished we would have walked up the hill to the cemetery behind the cathedral.
