A photo a day from Scotland’s biggest city.

Hogwarts?

Posted by Jackie on November 15, 2007

This is a view of the East Quadrangle of the Glasgow University main building. Lots of people think it looks like Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films 🙂

The University itself is the 2nd oldest in Scotland (after St Andrew’s), founded in 1451, and is the 4th oldest in the UK (behind St Andrew’s, Oxford and Cambridge). This building though dates from (I think) the 19th century.

I’m away again for a few days so might not be able to comment on other blogs or reply to comments here, but a new picture should still appear every day.
