St. Andrew’s Square is an interesting one, dominated by a church which is now an arts centre and surrounded by some modern but sympathetic buildings. It is easy to imagine street performers and cultural festivities happening there but when I was there, it was quiet with only me, a dog walker and a guy chatting on his phone to be found in the area. I made a circuit and looked at the church from different angles. I reflected that the Edinburgh equivalent, which doesn’t have an apostrophe nor an ‘s’ following an apostrophe, is typically much busier, a place for gatherings, eating lunch and peoplewatching. Not much prospect of that as I walked that sunny Saturday morning but that wasn’t entirely a bad thing.

Thanks for reading. This is the eighty-eighth Streets of Glasgow post here on Walking Talking. Other nearby streets featured here include St Andrews Street, Parnie Street and the Gallowgate. The Streets of Glasgow page has links to all of the previous posts in this series.

      1. Crail being in your autocorrect is quite decent to be fair! That’s really interesting, though. Thanks for that. Will need to look at the GWL tours to think of potential Streets for the future.
