100-Word Fringe: “The Necropolis” at The Top Of Fucking Glasgow

NecropolisNot one to limit my reviews to things that are actually theatre, I ventured to the Necropolis – a tiered, expansive graveyard that towers above Glasgow – on a jaunty day trip to the city. While not offering as impressive a view as Arthur’s Seat, its mixture of mausolea, statues and good old-fashioned spooky graves offers an easy way to get out of the city while remaining within it. A little high on discarded bottles of Irn-Bru and gin, but otherwise a beautiful, spooky and historically educational idyll at the heart of Glasgow. Plus, it’s called the fucking Necropolis, people.

When to go? It’s a graveyard. It ain’t going anywhere.
