  • Glasgow Cathedral: In the 7th century, a Celtic religious pilgrim called St. Mungo (or St. Kentigern) is believed to have started a monastery on the site of Glasgow Cathedral, consecrated in the 1130s. This is mainland Scotland's only fully intact medieval cathedral, and while the Protestant reformation stripped it of Roman Catholic idolatry, the corpse of St. Mungo apparently lies in the crypt of this impressive cathedral.
  • St. Vincent Street Church: Access is limited as the Free Church of Scotland is still using this kirk in Glasgow, but the landmark is a beautiful example of the work of Alexander "Greek" Thomson, Glasgow's largely unknown genius of the Victorian era. The clock tower is decorated in all manner of exotic yet sympathetic Egyptian, Assyrian, and even Indian-looking motifs and designs.
