My treasured place? The Duke of Wellington statue on Queen Street, in Glasgow, outside the Gallery of Modern Art. It reminds me of the beauty, art and architecture of our fine city. It reminds me of the history of our fine country. It reminds me of our large student population - our next generation, who maintain the city's vibrant atmosphere - and come from our wonderfully historic universities that have produced some of the worlds greatest minds of our time. Every time someone sticks a traffic cone on top! But most of all, that traffic cone reminds me of the wonderful humour of every Scot that has ever been, and that alone is what makes this country great.

The Odeon Cinema, South Clerk Street Edinburgh

A beautiful example of art deco, fond memories of looking up at the stars on the ceiling in the main auditorium! Sadly now closed, what a waste!

Bothwell Castle

This imposing medieval castle over looking the River Clyde still looks as impressive today as it must have did in bygone days. The castle itself is dominated by an impressive circular donjon and although the castle itself found itself under seige on numerouse occasions throughout it's history, this vast sructure has remained almost entirely intact.
