Tuesday 19 August
Glasgow Cathedral. The first stone building on the site was dedicated in 1136 while part of the present building was consecrated in 1197. Glasgow Cathedral was one of the few Catholic churches in Scotland to survive the Reformation intact. It is owned by the Crown and is looked after by Historic Scotland.
Glasgow Necropolis- a major cemetery.
Near the Cathedral is the St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art. Upstairs was an exhibition, In Honour's Cause - Glasgow's First World War memorials.
social media protest has caused officials to review their decision to spend large sums of money altering the statue plinth to stop the practice.
The exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art was entitled Generation: twenty-five years of contemporary art in Scotland. The exhibition did not impress us at all so it was a very quick visit to the gallery, however we did find Wellington's statue amusing.
Our flight to Dubai left in the evening. While we were waiting at the airport we noticed the bright blue sky outside - a little ironic considering the wintry weather we had experienced during our mid summer visit to Scotland.
