In the Footsteps of St Mungo

Route Map

This walk starts at Cathedral Square off Castle Street (postcode G4 0UZ) and continues around the heart of ancient Glasgow, around the Necropolis and Cathedral and the oldest house in Glasgow, Provand’s Lordship. Our walk finishes by taking you past some of Glasgow’s city centre Universities and Colleges. The complete walk is approximately 3 kilometres.


Some of the area is on level ground for example the area around Glasgow Cathedral and the access bridge across to the Necropolis. However the full walk involves steps, cobbles, some hills and grassy areas so would not be accessible for all. If you feel you can’t join the walk then please enjoy the many photographs and links on the website.
