Walking Group - Week 3: The Lighthouse

"For anyone who has yet to visit The Lighthouse on Mitchell Lane, now is a good time to go as the place is heaving with interesting exhibitions. Mind you, even without the exhibitions it’s a great place to visit as from the top of the building there are wonderful views across the city in every direction.

On the day that our group visited, the lift to the indoor viewing platform was out of order so they bravely took the tower staircase up to the outdoor one. It’s quite a tiring climb but the views from the top make it more than worth the effort.

After some time in the Lighthouse looking at the views and the exhibitions the group took a walk across to the nearby St Enoch Centre to have a look in The Unexpected Artist.

This is a relatively new shop which houses an exhibition space and a couple of areas for resident artists to work in. The group were welcomed by one of the artists who carried on working on his painting while the group had a look around.

A fine day for views and viewings."
