A landmark in Glasgow that I've pasted many time and wondered what it looked like a hundred or so years age. It must have been marvellous when it was built all these years age. A must to go with the camera.

Touring the old city of Glasgow, one can't miss this landmark. Very striking looking. It is apparently the only remaining part of Glasgow's 17th century tolbooth.

Located in the city center area, car traffic goes around this tower on both sides. It's unique to see but does not require any special trip or stop. If you're pressed for time, enjoy the picture and you've seen enough.

This steeple is well worth the short walk from the city centre. Walking through Merchant City, you can visit many shops, restaurants, bars and much more. Then, you have the steeple to admire and take photo memories

Well known landmark in Glasgow, separates the north and south side of High Street and the east end from the city centre. Not too much to see but it does give you your bearings and off course tells the time!

Slice of glasgows history. Interesting tower which has been preserved in its location. A good feature of the part where the merchant city meets the east end. Surrounded by busy crossings but interesting to look at.
