Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Art School

I would recommend a tour round Charles Rennie Mackintosh's iconic Glasgow School of Art.

It felt funny doing a 'tourist' tour in my own city. We all trouped round in a little group (complete with an American tourist asking loud questions and going on and on about Frank Lloyd Wright!), following our enthusiastic guide, an Architecture student.

I have been to classes in the building a few times but the tour took me to places I'd never seen before: the library, the white boardroom and a superb collection of Mackintosh furniture.

Have you ever been to the Scotland Street School?

I've lived in Glasgow pretty much all my life and have still never made it to the Scotlnd Street School - another chance to be a tourist in our own city perhaps?!
