Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Another look at Central Hotel’s clock tower ‘doors’

The recent warm spell that tool the place of last year’s Beast from the East gave me a chance to take a quick climb to the viewpoint at the top of the former Mackintosh water tower on The Lighthouse.

It’s a pity the viewpoint doesn’t have more recognisable features to spot from its height, but a lot of the view is filled by fairly anonymous rooftops, and is also being obscured as quite a few tall building have been added to Glasgow in recent years.

If making the effort to climb the (long) spiral stairway to the top, I’d recommend having a look at something like Google Earth beforehand, and picking some spot to look for, or try to identify while up there, and make the climb worth the effort.

On this occasion, I had just gone up for fun, since I happened to be there, but took the opportunity to update the previous long view in which I had spotted what looked like doors on top of the clock tower of the Central Hotel.

I still don’t know if they are false or not, but they do look real until you look at them in more detail.

This was the first time I noticed them from the tower.

On this occasion I was able to catch a higher resolution view.
