Чем вы займетесь

My tour consists of visiting various graves in the Old Burial Ground of Glasgow Cathedral where I illustrate, with the aid of images, the lives of those interred and by so doing show how they reflect the history and development of the City of Glasgow from late Mediaeval times to the present day . Alternative: If the weather is inclement then an internal tour of the Cathedral can be provided at no extra charge. I am a Volunteer Guide at the Cathedral and eminently qualified to provide his tour also. (Please note that due to Lockdown the Cathedral is currently closed. It is scheduled for re-opening at the end of August/beginning of September 2020. This does not affect the Tour)

I am a retired professional person with a great interest and pride in my native city. My tour illustrates the history of Glasgow and it's place in Scottish, British and World history. This is the result of extensive research and historical detective work and is set in Glasgow's only surviving mediaeval building, Glasgow Cathedral.
I am a member of the Society of Friends of Glasgow Cathedral and a volunteer Guide there. I also provide a Genealogy service for those who wish to trace ancestors who maybe buried in the two Burying Grounds which surround the Cathedral (see the official Cathedral website). The oldest traceable Monumental Inscription there dates to 1595. I am also a member of the Society of Friends of Glasgow Necropolis the cemetery which rises on the hill above the Cathedral (but which is separate from the Cathedral).

Где вы побываете

There is only one location: The Old Burial Ground of Glasgow Cathedral, which is situated at the top of the High Street, Glasgow. Please note this is NOT the Glasgow Necropolis, which is quite separate.

There is a statement I firmly believe in: no morning alarm needed, passion wakes me up. This tour is a once in a lifetime experience because Colin has passion in what he's doing. He has a solid and deep understanding of the subject and he was able to answer various random questions I had. I simply cannot recommend highly enough. A side note, if your goal is visiting the cathedral, come in September as the cathedral is not opened yet.

Colin was very knowledgable on all topics, we enjoyed all the history on the tour and it delivered in a very friendly interesting and engaging manner. Would definitely recommend and would go on other tours if Colin was hosting them!

If you really want to a get a sense of Glasgow's history through the people that lived and died there then you have to go on Colin's Bring Up The Bodies tour. You would think that spending two hours in a relatively small graveyard, things might start to drag towards the end. But even though I was nursing a hangover, I was enthralled throughout thanks to Colin's clear passion for and connection with his city's history and the free-flowing and playful nature of his storytelling. Colin brought the people and the stories to life with three binders full of portraits and snippets of historic texts which demonstrated the lengths he has gone to in his research and effort to craft a magnificent tour. It was driving wind and rain outside but Colin soldiered on unwavering. I was offered the indoors tour as a substitute but he was more than happy to continue with the outdoors tour for me. We even went over by 20 minutes or so which I didn't mind at all given the quality content I was getting. The tour was very intimate (just me) which was great for interaction and more questions, but I can't wait for Colin to be presenting to larger groups in the near future - he deserves it! The tour didn't feel like a forced performance as it has done on other walking tours, it was just one man in his element, enjoying what he does. If you are genuinely interested in the history, then go, go, go!

Colin's history knowledge was amazing. He was fascinating to listen to and i enjoyed every minute. Full marks to Colin for persevering with the tour despite the freezing temperature. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

A well researched and exceptionally interesting tour of the internees of Glasgow Cathedral graveyard. Educating us both on Scottish history in general and the part that eminent Glasgow families played in important events. Colin’s enthusiasm in his subject was contagious. We loved it.
