After I pass the South front of the University on my right and the hill/overlook on my left,  I turn right into Professor’s Square. This is the end of Professor’s Square closest to the Main Gate of school. My seminars are in 4 the Square room 205, all the way in the one on the left! My classes on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s happen here, and I guess we’ll find out where Wednesday’s happen this coming week.

Since I was early to class, I thought I’d give you a shot of the left quad, since I pass it on the way.

cloisters selfie, just because

The cloisters are so pretty, don’t you think?

Flower beds, COOL BIRD I DON’T KNOW YET, and the back of the Kelvingrove Museum

Couldn’t resist the cheerful flower beds

A really great photo spot to stop and catch ones breath

With about six more stairs to go, the tower appears to ones left.

Down along Kelvin Way, having crossed over the Kelvin River, I can either continue straight to the intersection with University Ave, or I can go up the hill to the left here, and come out at the University South Front. I chose up this hill, in order to snap a few pictures in the sunlight.

This is the view up Argyle Street, towards the local Tesco Express
20160920_101245
I cross the street and keep the Islay Inn on my right
20160920_101243
Radnor Street Surgery is where I’m registered with the Doctor.
20160920_101228
I continue onto Haugh, and I’m approaching the intersection of Haugh and Argyle. Ahead you’ll see the Islay Inn on the right, and Radnor Street Surgery on the left.

I’m still at the intersection of Gilbert/Yorkhill/Haigh, but this is a view back down Gilbert so you can see from whence I came.

Same again
20160920_100851
This is the intersection between Gilbert Sreet which continues straight to become Haugh Road, and Yorkhill street. I could turn left if I wanted, but it wouldn’t be faster or easier.
20160920_100627
To the right of Maclay is the train, then the highway, then the river.

Turned back around so you could see the lettering of the building. Block 17 is hidden behind the trees in the back left corner.
20160920_100551
A view to the left of the main gate, up Sandyford Street (and the damned hill). At the top of the hill I take a right onto Gilbert Street.

The entrance and exit of the complex
20160920_100508
That’s reception. I haven’t been in there, but the woman to the right is headed into the laundry room.
20160920_100503
I know nothing about this lady, but the statue is always used for pictures of Maclay, so here you go. I pass her when I leave every day.

My building’s front door, and my kitchen window to the left on the American 3rd floor/UK second floor.

The inner courtyard of Maclay, with my building in the corner.

  1. Hi Carrrianne, Thanks so much for sharing your Scottish experiences with us. It’s so interesting to see the photos and read about your academic and social adventures. Sounds like all is going very well indeed. I did, by the way, read that poem you did your presentation about (I think it was by Rosetti, the sister of the painter). I’d love to read your analysis some day. (My mind is blocking about the name of the poem) Anyway, keep us posted. Love, Johanna

  2. Hi Carianne! It’s Kat here, you might remember we exchanged a couple of emails at the beginning of the year before you started the MLitt. I’m hoping to do it in a couple of years’ time. I’m just getting round to reading back through all your blog entries so far, and couldn’t help but say – did you ever learn the name of the bird? It’s a magpie! There’s a little rhyme about seeing them… seeing only one is supposed to be a sign of sorrow, but hopefully it wasn’t for you!
    Hope we can reconnect to talk more about your expeirneces.
    All the best!

    1. Hi Kat! Yes, I did learn it rather quickly because I watch a grandma curse one out when it went for her charge’s binky!
      I’m even happier to recommend the course from this side of it. I’d be happy to connect on facebook so I can introduce you to our convener and the whole crew!
