ON MY VACATION – ADMIRING GLASGOW’S FASCINATING SKYLINE FROM ‘THE LIGHTHOUSE’

The Lighthouse, part of Scotland’s Centre for Design & Architecture, is just high enough to allow an uninterrupted view of GLASGOW’s city-centre skyline.

The multiplicity of architectural styles and building designs, all bunched up together, is quite wonderful.

The Lighthouse, 1895, designed by famed architect CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH was the Glasgow Herald‘s former headquarters.  Its helical staircase to the MacKintosh Tower is accessible from the 3rd floor.

The sixth floor viewing room is reached by an elevator.  To access the MacKintosh Tower on the north side, the only way up is by this staircase.

The Lighthouse contains one of the UK’s extraordinary observation towers.
