A beautiful garden inside a hospital, a staircase once celebrated by Einstein, the remains of a workhouse and a Roman wall, a lost burn and a reminder of the Spanish Civil War, a stranded column in the Clyde and a Celtic gravestone, a derelict railway platform, a stone that flew over the Irish Sea, the burial place of a Scot who became an American hero and mysterious etchings on a cathedral wall …
Glasgow is full of hidden treasures that many residents go past without realising their significance.
This is an indispensable guide for anyone who thought they knew the city well but would like to discover its hidden face.
Stephen Millar was born and brought up in Glasgow and now splits his time between there and Edinburgh. He has long had an interest in urban exploration and takes walking groups around Glasgow, Edinburgh, and London. His articles and photographs have appeared in iNews, The Scotsman, The Herald on Sunday, Edinburgh Evening News, Edinburgh Live, and The Daily Record. Stephen has spoken about his book Tribes of Glasgow at Glasgow’s Aye Write! Book Festival.
Gillian Loney is a journalist, columnist and editor of Glasgow Live, the city’s biggest news website. She has spent a decade covering culture, what’s on and breaking news, and specialises in writing about Glasgow’s growing food and drink scene – which means she’s always on hand to recommend local restaurants. Her work has also featured in the Daily Record, The Scotsman, the Daily Mirror, the Wow24–7 website and more. Secret Glasgow, her first book, marks a new chapter for her.
