Fodor's Review

Glasgow's oldest house, one of only four medieval buildings surviving in the city, was built in 1471 by Bishop Andrew Muirhead. Before it was rescued by the Glasgow City Council, this building had been a pub, a sweetshop, and a soft drinks factory. It is now a museum that shows the house as it might have looked when it was occupied by officers of the church. The furniture is 17th century. The top floor is a gallery with prints and paintings depicting the characters who might have lived in the surrounding streets. The St. Nicholas Garden behind the house is a medicinal herb garden, and the cloisters house rather disturbing carved stone heads.
