Capturing the world with Photography, Painting and Drawing

A view of Glasgow from the Lighthouse Museum

The Lighthouse Museum, Scotland’s Center for Design and Architecture, is a visitor center, exhibition space and events venue situated in the heart of Glasgow, just off the Style Mile. The Lighthouse acts as a beacon for the creative industries in Scotland and promotes design and architecture through a vibrant programme of exhibitions and events.

The Museum building formerly housed the Glasgow Herald, it was the first public commission completed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and is the perfect place to begin a Mackintosh tour of Glasgow, as it has a permanent exhibition of his work.

We visited both the viewing tower and all the great exhibitions three weeks ago, it was one of the highlights of our time in this great Scottish city…..

These images show the spiral staircase that accesses the viewing tower and a view from each of the platforms at the top.

      Thank you, yes its a narrow an very high walk to the top, it takes a moment for you to take a breath when you step outside for the view but its a fantastic one and well worth it 🙂 🙂
