Sightseeing at Glasgow Cathedral

Arguably one of the most important buildings in Scotland and conveniently nestled into the city centre. This miraculous structure has an impressive past, most of which is easily visible inside and outside of the cathedral. It was the only medieval cathedral on the Scottish mainland to survive the protestant reformation almost completely intact. Some of its notable attractions are its fine post-war collections of stained glass windows in Britain.
