This walk started at the Royal Conservitoire of Scotland and headed off to Sighthill and on to Glebe Street- home of the Broons – taking in monuments and sculptures on the way. Then round into Parson Street, the birthplace of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and a stop to read the plaque to the martyrs.
We then continued down to High Street for a stop off and look round Provand’s Lordship before heading past the Cathedral to the Glasgow Necropolis, one of the finest examples of Victorian landscaped cemeteries in Europe. Of particular note was the Jewish Cemetery which predates the Christian part by a year. From here we headed back to town passed Strathclyde University’s “Wonder Wall” of huge building murals, finishing at one of the University’s cafes for a coffee and scone.
