The University of Glasgow is well worth a visit for an amble around the campus grounds. It is also the site of the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery where William Hunter provided his vast collection as well as the money to construct the museum to house it.

St. Andrews cathedral, built way back in 1814, is worth a visit for its' spectacular gothic architecture which has been restored to past glories in recent times. There is some stunning artwork on display inside the church and a beautiful little cloister garden to check out too.
