Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

A quality mural near The Barras

While this is an unfair comparison – and it’s not actually meant to be taken as a comparison since this is NOT a shutter mural – it is still a fair example of what can be produced.

I came across this one quite a while ago, but used the pic in another forum so had forgotten to mention it here.

If you were at Bill’s Tool Store at the Barras, you could turn around and look behind you. If it hasn’t been removed or replaced then you’ll see it.

It really is rather good, and worth at least a glance for real.

Bain St St Luke’s Mural

I’m afraid I don’t know the significance of the winged bull (oops, sorry ox), but I do think it’s safe to say the mural has some connection with Tennant’s – I see at least 4 references to that particular Glasgow brew.

Note: See comments below for more info 🙂

  1. The old St Luke’s church in Bain Street is now a bar called, strangely enough, St Luke’s. The bull or winged ox refers to the fact that in paintings St Luke was usually depicted with a winged ox. The bar has named their restaurant the WInged Ox I guess in association to this.
