I've been to Glasgow, once, many years ago, and I don't recall murals then. But we didn't stay long—it was a quick visit as we started our walking tour of the West Highland Way. According to an official brochure, the City Centre Mural Trail was launched in 2014 "to promote the growing portfolio of works adorning buildings within Glasgow city centre." How delightful! It makes me want to pay a return visit to that city, which I recall enjoying. It has a very different feel from Edinburgh, more solid and rugged, more brick than granite, no castle atop the hill.
Here are some of the murals (the first is the one that caught my eye, photo by Chantal van der Ende-Appel). As always, click on the images to view them large on black.
