From Sauchiehall Street
Once again, the South Front of the Main Building of the University of Glasgow, this time from the western end of Sauchiehall Street, one of the main streets running through the central parts of Glasgow. To the right lies Kelvin Way, which leads through Kelvingrove Park to the bottom of University Avenue. The building to the left of this shot is the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the most popular museum in Scotland. Past that is the Transportation Museum, so with the Hunterian Museum included, this area of Glasgow has an impressive concentration of fantastic museum items on display.
For a number of students, this sight is a common one, as just south of this spot lie the Cairncross House and Kelvinhaugh Street student apartments.
Every now and then I’ll step outside the University campus and show some of the surrounding area, although I’ll be sure to always have some little link to the University, no matter how insignificant the link may be.
Interesting little tidbit: According to Wikipedia, Sauchiehall roughly translates to ‘Way of the Willows’.
