The old Scottish academy

September 7th: the Duke of Rothesay and his wife Camilla opened the newly restored  Tea Rooms originally dating back to 1903, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, whose School of Art just a few hundred  yards along the road was so tragically destroyed by fire earlier this year. The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is itself only a minute's walk away.

The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, as it was called when I was a student there n 1960, just a couple of minutes' walk down Buchanan Street, and facing St George's Tron Church in what used to be St George's Place, for many years now Mandela Place.
