My life in a museum? 30 days of biking sightseeing

architectural cycling sightseeing!

30 days of biking and more

Day 27 of day 30, a day of cycling sightseeing combining art, architecture, digital photos and cycling.  I went to see the Glasgow architectural masterpiece which is Scotland Street School.  This is a wonderful and free tourist attraction, easily accessible from the city centre via cycle routes from Bells Bridge, and also subway (it is opposite Shields Road station). It is not your ordinary school, it was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and is fitted as a museum with class room s from various periods (Victorian to 1960’s).

There are wonderful architectural details, typical of Mackintosh, with nature inspired motifs, vibrant colours and Locharbriggs red sandstone.
