GEORGE SQUARE, GLASGOW. Print View Itinerary


Named after the mad King, George III, although you would expect to see him atop the large Doric column in the centre of the square, you have in fact the very first monument to Sir Walter Scott, by Alexander Handyside Ritchie. This square formed part of the grid system we see today not only in Glasgow, but, in Edinburgh and of course all over the new world of the United States and Canada.

As we can see the most notable part of The Square is in fact, The City Chambers, completed in 1888 flanked by the old Post Office building and the railway/Millennium hotel and facing it, what was formerly The Royal Bank Of Scotland. We should not forget the Cenotaph, situated directly in front of the City Chambers and looking into The Square, erected by Earl Haig Fund, in 1922, to remember the Glaswegians who fell in the First World War.

Now how do we see this as part of our Journey? No, not World War Z, although The Square was adapted to look like Philadelphia for the movie, We are of course interested in Outlander...

People disappear all the time....the very opening of the Outlander and a very apt opening for our journey...with the exception, that we will bring you home with the memory of an experience that cannot be seen or felt anywhere else...You will be taken by cast members who have an inside knowledge of the show and that will be shared with you...with many other secrets and surprises along the way.

An experience that will last and live with you forever...

You may be aware The Square, or at least the rear of it on John Street, Season 1, Episode 7, was the setting for one of the many love scenes in the series where we had the proposal from Frank to Claire, which she lovingly accepted.

On a slightly funnier note, this is where fines are paid to the city by the poor unfortunates that find themselves at the mercy of traffic wardens and the like...

And now onto Our first stop...
