Walter Scott monument, George Square, City Chambers, G2 1DU
See the city from a new perspective on this tour exploring the geology and origins of the rocks cladding many of Glasgow’s central buildings.
Much of the stone used in the construction and cladding of the buildings in Glasgow was initially quarried in and around Glasgow before improvement in transport brought rock from further afield. This walk will discuss where the rock came from and also the geological age and environment which produced these rocks. Everyone on the tour will receive a booklet describing the walk.
