Otherwise known as Glasgow Cathedral, the building dates from the late 12th centrury. Dedicated to St Mungo, the tomb of the saint is located in the crypt.

My visits on 19 & 21 May 2016 were for the rehearsal and performance of choral works with Glasgow Cathedral Choral Society. This did mean that photographic opportunities and a more comprehensive look at the building was not possible.

The West End features a rose window at the top of the building.

This taster means that I must arrange to visit the building and its environs for a more comprehensive look at the building.
