Scottish Literature at the University of Glasgow HQ! This building has been a home to so many great people.
Thereโ€™s a weird little ground floor room known locally as the โ€˜gun roomโ€™. I once thought Hepburn stored guns there, but turns out the name was a gag about Edwardian lifestyle by the late Prof Douglas Gifford

The famous statue of Fergusson that stands outside Canongate Kirk was unveiled twenty years ago in 2004. Over 15,000 people voted for their favourite prospective statue, and David Annand's successful design took 67% of the vote!
