One of Scotland's best Gothic churches, especially if you discount the abbeys and cathedrals ruined by the English... Don't miss the Blackadder Chapel in the Crypt! The beautiful cathedral features in Outlander, and in Outlaw King.

A must for fans of Gothica and also for fans of Peter Howson. The garden of mirrors is also a super place to go for a little inner city peace and quite - a love spot for meditation.

Attended Mass here -- lovely cathedral just by main shopping centre downtown. I like the bright interior, and appreciated the history behind the side chapels, and the special tree outside in the little courtyard (do ask). Gift shop open and with nice assortment.

Glasgow's Catholic Cathedral is still a wee bit under the tourist 'radar'. Sinful actually. Only 5 minutes walk from behind the St Enoch Centre in a prime spot near to the river. The restoration was only completed in 2011.The exterior is grand indeed. Take time...More

This cathedral is located by The Necropolis across a bridge or along a walkway. Take the time to explore the entire cathedral as there is a lego display located inside that is incredible to see and look at.

There were no services occurring when we were there. I don't know if they have regular services or not.

No it's not a huge building but it is very beautiful and it has a great location right next to the riverside and there is a lot of history attached to it the car park at the rear was once a workhouse as far as. Know.
