Ok this might seem to be an odd place to start a tour of Glasgow, let alone Scotland but I had just arrived in Glasgow at 7:00am and everything else was closed. It was an unusually hot day for this part of Scotland in May. I was just thankful it did not rain. Since there was a service in the Cathedral, I decided I could not visit it, so I decided to walk around the Central Necropolis until the my hotel room was ready. I was very tired but the fresh air and sun kept me awake. The necropolis is nothing special in my eyes but might be a worth a walk through for views of the Cathedral and for the large statue of John Knox.
