Au programme

My tour consists of visiting various graves in the Old Burial Ground surrounding Glasgow Cathedral the oldest (c 1560) Burying Ground in the City, where I illustrate, with the aid of images, the lives of those interred and by so doing show how they reflect the history and development of the City of Glasgow from late Mediaeval times to the present day . Alternative: If the weather is inclement then an internal tour of the Cathedral can be provided (depending on availability) at no extra charge. I am a Volunteer Guide at the Cathedral and eminently qualified to provide his tour also.
Other things to note
The Old Burial Ground is grassed, sloping and needs to be walked with care in wet weather. Footwear with square heels is recommended.

I am a retired professional person with a great interest and pride in my native city. My tour illustrates the history of Glasgow and it's place in Scottish, British and World history. This is the result of extensive research and historical detective work and is set in Glasgow's only surviving mediaeval building, Glasgow Cathedral.
I am a member of the Society of Friends of Glasgow Cathedral and a volunteer Guide there. I also provide a Genealogy service for those who wish to trace ancestors who maybe buried in the two Burying Grounds which surround the Cathedral (see the official Cathedral website). The oldest traceable Monumental Inscription there dates to 1595. I am also a member of the Society of Friends of Glasgow Necropolis the cemetery which rises on the hill above the Cathedral (but which is separate from the Cathedral).

Fascinating tour of little known (and noticeable) part of old Glasgow, stemming from Collin’s original archival research of the cemetery. Outstandingly rewarding experience for everyone interested in the history of Glasgow.

This is a fun and different tour than your usual spooky or kitschy tour. It’s also outside which is a plus for this year. Colin is super friendly and is local which helps with the stories. It’s something different and you get to learn about the people buried around the cathedral. I wouldn’t have otherwise known many of the people, but I’m glad I came and learned more than expected. Definitely check it out! Colin is awesome and very personable.

Great way to spend a couple of hours, Colin is friendly, knowledgeable and engaging, the tour is well prepared and researched. A real labour of love, and helps bring to life the location, the history of the City and its inhabitants.

Colin's tour was a fantastic way to spend a morning in Glasgow. He was a fountain of knowledge and he could answer most questions we put to him. He seemed passionate about his topic and he could make the history come alive with his anecdotes and stories of local and international significance. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning about the history of Glasgow from a very unique perspective!
