Ruth’s favourite building is Pollokshaws Burgh Hall

BECAUSE she is exposed to some of Glasgow’s most fascinating buildings on a daily basis, Ruth Morris says her favourite building changes every week.

The events and development coordinator at Glasgow Building Preservation Trust says this week her favourite is Pollokshaws Burgh Halls on the city’s southside, but next week it might be St Andrews in the Square.

Ruth said what fascinates her most about the “stunning” Burgh Halls is the treasures that are still being unearthed to this day, she added:

“It has a Gothic interior and old Glasgow college exterior and many a hidden little places, including a clock tower that during Doors Open Day you can join a tour to go up it – yes you can literally be inside the clock!

“I just find the history of the building, the area and the enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable community that are involved so fascinating.”
