Our Glasgow treasure hunt starts in George Square in the very centre of the city.  After exploring the square, the route heads past the Royal Exchange with its famous statue of Wellington always wearing a traffic cone.  It then winds through the Merchant City district with its many reminders of Glasgow's days as one of the most prosperous cities in the empire, including the Tobacco Merchant's House, Hutcheson's Hospital and the Britannia Music Hall.  Finally, we head up to the ancient cathedral, dedicated to St. Mungo, the patron saint of Glasgow, where the treasure hunt ends.
