The West End

This series of blogs feature visits to places around Scotland. Usually these are far away points in the Scottish Highlands. Maybe a lighthouse on the corner of a Scottish Island, or a castle in the Highlands. This one is different, an appreciation of Glasgow’s West End.


I lived in the West End of Glasgow for a few years and loved it. Naturally I am drawn to the countryside, but there is something special and unique about the West End of Glasgow.

Whilst now being based in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs, Glasgow is not far away and I visit regularly for business and pleasure.

On a recent visit I had a few hours spare so decided to use that time to enjoy my own walking trip around the West End with a camera. I wanted to capture the unique atmosphere and architecture, which is why I love the West End. Here are the results:

Urban Photography

It was good to be shooting some urban scenery for a change. However, the West End of Glasgow is a setting that I have used for a number of Pre-Wedding Photography Sessions, Family Photography Sessions and also a few Business Portraits. You can see some of those photographs at the end of this blog.

I hope that you enjoy looking at the photographs. I would highly recommend a walk around the West End of Glasgow with a camera. If you need a rest along the way then there are many good bars and cafes to tempt you in.

West End Portraits

As promised a selection of portraits taken in the West End.
