Local tourist guide Alec Mack has a passion for Glasgow along with its history and culture. The inspiration behind this blog is a desire to share his passion for St Mungo’s dear green place with the world by writing and commenting on some the many attractions the city has to offer. Alec grew up as a skyscaper wean – to quote Adam McNaughton’s anthem to modern high rise living – in the city’s Gorbals district and the city has remained a constant source of creativity and identity to him, even at times when he has been living elsewhere.
Alec is a member and yellow badge holder with the Scottish Tourist Guide Association. He also works as a musician and hopes to use his many talents to promote Glasgow and Scotland as a tourist destination in the years to come.
