Learn the history behind Scotland's ancient castles and buildings
About an hour, depending on fitness level. Bear in mind that you will likely stop several times to view the murals, so plan for longer.
Easy. The trail runs through the city centre and is accessible by well-maintained modern roads and footpaths.
Glasgow has a fantastic array of street murals that have been created by local artists under the direction of the city council. The murals showcase a diverse range of talent and styles and are now recognised for their interpretations of the heritage and culture of the city. The various artworks have been designed to transform otherwise less attractive corners of Glasgow into striking public artworks, and a walk between each mural allows visitors to see parts of the city centre that they probably wouldn’t otherwise find. The walk shown here visits many of the most impressive murals in the city centre, and the entire route is easily accessible on foot. Note that the artworks are designed to reflect the developing city, so as many of the buildings are upgraded some of these murals will either be altered or lost forever, therefore re-walking the route a year or so later might show some interesting changes.
