Can't missed this. Walking up the spiral staircase of 133 steps to the roof top, great 360 degrees view of Glasgow! Also many about Mackintosh if you a fan of art.

The best view of the Scottish city, plus great information and cool stuff exposed through the three floors about architecture and the work of Mackintosh

“Great view!”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Well worth a visit. Stunning view of Glasgow City Centre and free!! We got a lift to a viewing gallery but i've since discovered there's also a spiral staircase with an outside panorama of the city.

“Great because it's rare”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

This is perhaps the only place showcasing architectural exhibitions in Glasgow. The building itself is a symbiosis of modern and traditional elements, and the exhibitions show some of the best architectural designs Scotland has to offer.

But it's only so valued because Glasgow shockingly lacks in modern cultural variety. Nevertheless this does not undermine the quality of work presented at the Lighthouse.
