Your University, One Photo at a Time

Gilmorehill from the Boyd Orr Building

Gilmorehill from the Boyd Orr Building

As teased on Saturday, the 11th floor of the Boyd Orr Building offers one of the best panoramic views of the University, as you can see above.

Besides the numerous buildings on campus, most of which you can probably recognize, If you look carefully, you can make out the flag of Scotland flying at the South Front of the University’s Main Building, as well as the scaffolding slowly covering up parts of the building above the Hunterian Museum due to the roof works. I’ve tagged all the visible University buildings on the Flickr page, which you can get to by clicking on the photo above.

Off in the distance on the right hand side of the photo you can make out the Clyde Arc, Titan Crane, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the SECC, the BBC Scotland Building, and Glasgow Science Museum.

Anything I missed?

  1. You can also see the windfarm on the horizon on the far right (at least in the enlarged version!) – I think it’s Whitelee Windfarm in Eaglesham.

    • You must have looked really carefully to spot that. Took me a minute to find them myself just now.

      I also just noticed the reflection of the Armadillo on the BBC Scotland building.
