What about Old College in Edinburgh--a beautiful Adam building, although scarred by a car park in the quadrangle, although for that matter Glasgow University's main buildings are distinctive as well, and to make up an academic trio, what about Duncanstone and Jordan Art School in Dundee which is an under-rated Brutalist statement. Also, would it not be appropriate to include the Roman fortlet at Bo'ness, where the fosse is still visible, with the ruined kirk and Kinneil House nearby showing a range of historic architectural artefacts in close range? Given their socio-historic importance, it would be good to see at least one Carnegie library on the list as well. Buildings are not simply buildings: their social significance should also be a factor.

Yes Yes Yes, The Radisson SAS , in Glasgow. Europe's best designed hotel in the home of the deep fried mars bar. What a surprise. I love it:-)

The Botanic Gardens Glasgow, it was one of the first places I took my children as I have such happy memories of visiting it and kibble palace from my childhood. I cannot believe the council is considering approving an application for a nighclub in the gardens. The botanics and the wider Byres Road area should be protected from any more pubs opening. Pubs in Glasgow don't add anything to the community, quite the opposite and are typically short term business ventures which fold after 2 or 3 years. Ashton Lane for example has lost it's family feel. Byres Road would be a close second as my treasured place.

Cruachan Dam and Generating Hall. A construction on an Imperial Roman scale, simply designed and set in stunning scenery on a hollow mountain. It was exciting to visit as a child and just as fun when I visited last year. It's also a monument to one of Scotland's last grand infrastucture projects, will we see their like again?

I love the Radisson SAS Hotel in Glasgow. I left Glasgow in 1973 and married an American guy and returned for the first time last fall to see my family, my mother is 93. Anyway, we stayed at the Radisson Hotel on Argyle Street and it was wonderful and architecturally really impressive. I don't usually like the modern stuff but this was excellent and in glasgow.
