Milngavie to Glasgow
I decided this morning to do part of tomorrows walk today and then have a shorter walking day tomorrow.
Milngavie is the start of the West Highland way, so I caught the train to Milngavie and then walked back to Glasgow. The walk initially followed tracks alongside some minor rivers and then changed to walking through Glasgow suburbs. Nothing of real interest to see on the way, but I am happy to have shortened tomorrows walk.
Glasgow has a lot of street murals and so this afternoon I decided to do the 10km Glasgow Murals Trail. The murals artists are very talented and some of the murals are amazing. Below is a selection of the best murals that I saw during my walk.
Hip Hop Marionettes
Man with Birds
Fellow Glasgow Residents – depicts varied wildlife of Glasgow Parks. These 4 pictures are all part of one mural along a building wall, but it was impossible to get the whole mural in one photo.
Billy Connolly (Glasgow’s favourite son) – Three different murals of Billy. The last mural is on the wall of the Hootenanny pub hence the name ‘billy’s beer garden’
The World’s Most Economical Taxi. The brick effect on this wall is actually painted on as part of mural.
Honey I Shrunk the Kids
Hand Shadow Puppets
