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.
