Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Spotted another ‘Big Heid’ mural – lurking in Dumbarton Road

I spotted another ‘Big Heid’ mural recently, but only got the chance to take a pic today.

Almost lurking just behind some vegetation, this one is on the shuttering at the bottom of the Pontecorvo Building in Dumbarton Road.

This one’s hard to place correctly – I’m not entirely sure of the details, but as far as I can see (from various maps) this is where this road changes its name from Argyle Street to the east, and becomes Dumbarton Road to the west, at the entrance to Glasgow University, and Maggie’s (cancer centre).

If that’s wrong, add a comment with details – I’m never sure since I found this spot, and had previously been assuming the change took place at the major junction with Byres Road (and others), a little further to the west. But, looking closer at the placement of the street names on various maps, found that assumption appeared to be wrong.

It’s at the bottom of this building, which didn’t have the heid, or the greenery growing there, when this pic was taken.
