About McLennan Arch

Step through the McLennan Arch and step into Glasgow’s storied past. This classical triumphal arch, originally part of the Glasgow Assembly Rooms, now graces the entrance to Glasgow Green, offering a picturesque gateway that’s rich in history and style. 

It’s not just an arch; it's a portal to the city's architectural evolution and a favourite backdrop for photographers and history enthusiasts alike.

Best Time/Season to Visit:
The McLennan Arch is a stunning sight year-round, but it shines brightest during the golden hours of early morning or late afternoon when the soft light casts dramatic shadows and highlights its grand contours. Visiting during Glasgow’s vibrant festivals, particularly those held in Glasgow Green, offers a lively and picturesque experience.
