This is a wonderful place to visit and climb up to the top (or take a lift to another view) and take in the exhibits. Really need to plan time to take it all in. Highly recommend.

The whole building scream art, many galleries connected by the towers and the view is amazing, it was great in the daylight but at night looks stunning.

The Lighthouse in Glasgow is one of these places that you simply can't miss when visiting the city. You can get to the top and take some awesome shots of Glasgow from the above. The best part is that the admission is free of charge, so you won't pay anything for that!

Another Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed building, this museum and art gallery is completely free to enter (although some special exhibitions may charge a fee). There are two main towers, one with a lift and one with a serial staircase. Both offer fantastic views across the city centre. For architectural merit go for the lighthouse tower with the spiral stairs, just be ready for the climb.

Als Hafenstadt hat Glasgow nicht nur schöne Wasserfronten, sondern auch einen eindrucksvollen Leuchtturm, den ihr euch bei einem Besuch zur Küste unbedingt anschauen solltet.
Rund um das Bauwerk kann man toll Spaziergänge unternehmen und besonders schön ist ein Trip hierher früh morgens oder zum Sonnenuntergang.

Im Inneren gibt es zudem eine Ausstellung und der Blick von oben ist umwerfend schön.
