Your University, One Photo at a Time

The University from Byres Road

The University from Byres Road

And now, for something completely different. The University of Glasgow lies on Gilmorehill, one of the taller points in the city of Glasgow. I’ve been looking for a shot which would demonstrate how tall the buildings are and that the campus lies at the top of a hill.

This photo, well, this faux-HDR composite photo, was taken from the very top of Byres Road from a third floor window. You can pretty well see the University Library, the very top of the University Tower, the Boyd Orr Building and the roof of the Adam Smith Building. If you click through to the Flickr page by clicking on the photo above, you’ll see that I’ve added notes to the picture detailing where the University buildings are, as well as some of the other West End buildings visible in the photo, such as the Hillhead Library. Just roll your mouse over the photo and you’ll see the notes outlined.
