Glasgow’s Lighthouse is a Charles Rennie Mackintosh building that used to be part of the Glasgow Herald‘s printing offices until they moved out in the mid-80s. The Lighthouse re-opened in 1999 as Scotland’s Centre for Architecture, Design and the City. We visited recently for an excellent exhibition on Art Nouveau (phone photos). If you’re in the area and fancy it, it’s only on till tomorrow, so be quick!
We also climbed the distinctive tower, which originally contained an 8000-gallon water tank, for great views over the city’s roofscape (John’s photos).
Finally, some more shots of the interior.
A lovely escape from a wet afternoon!
