Excerpt from The Baronial and Ecclesiastical Antiquities of Scotland, Vol. 3 At the northern extremity of the city of Glasgow, on an elevated and solitary spot, to which the noise of the busy swarming town scarcely penetrates, stands the Cathedral of St. Mungo, the noblest unmutilated specimen of ecclesiastical architecture in Scotland. To reach it the traveller has to pass through a line of sordid filthy streets; and its first appearance is not inviting, from the unfortunate predominance of the north-western Tower, or Belfiy, the upper portion of which is the work of a comparatively late period. It is from a point near the north-western extremity that the full effect of the building is most satisfactorily felt. Its predominant character are height and length, and the details are so arranged as, with wonderful felicity, to aid these features. The roofs, both of the aisles and of the central departments, have a very abrupt slope, and the windows, in the style generally denominated the Early English, are narrow and lancet-shaped. The transept projects so little beyond the aisle, that the building scarcely presents the usual cruciform ground plan, and thus the long perspective is scarcely broken. A considerable descent of the ground towards the east adds greatly to the elevation of the choir and to the general loftiness of the structure; and if there be any portion of it which does not aid this prevailing character, it is the spire, evidently of a later date than the rest of the building, and characterised by the canopied windows of a more florid style of architecture. The individual parts of the exterior are not profusely ornamented; but the windows, buttresses, and gurgoiles are so numerous as to impart great richness to the solemn dignity of the old undecorated Gothic, the silence of the place, and the multitude of tombs with which the old grave-yard is paved, are in full harmony with the character of the edifice. Near its eastern extremity, in a deep hollow, runs a stream, and on the opposite bank rise, tier above tier, the hundreds of tombs of the modem Necropolis, appearing like a vast and indefinite continuation of the original grave-yard, and certainly seen to greater advantage through the uncertainty of distance, than on a nearer approach. The southern side, exhibiting some details of a later style of architecture, is inferior in simple grandeur to the northern; but a small low edifice, with groined arches, intended apparently as the basement story or crypt of a continuation of the transept, will strike the stranger who climbs up and peeps through its only window, with the richness of its interior decorations. A feature of the exterior that must not be omitted is, a line of massive gurgoiles, of very expressive character, consisting each of a monstrous open mouth, on the lower jan of which a grotesque face is represented in bas-relief. Entering by a wide door on the south, the first object likely to be noticed is the rich screen separating the choir from the rest of the building, which the accompanying engraving renders it unnecessary to describe.
