We have a series of photo blog posts from Glasgow-based professional photographer Gillian Hayes of Dapple Photography, from selected venues from the Glasgow’s Doors Open Day programme.

Here are photos from The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons on St. Vincent St. The College is a grand building in the centre of Glasgow, and occupies three 19th century houses. It has finely decorated Beaux Arts interiors, first built in 1820 with later additions by JJ Burnet. Its collections are on display, including rare books, medical instruments, portraits and contemporary art. These provide food for thought for visitors whilst the centre’s Edinburgh counterpart in Old Town is under extensive refurbishment.
