Know Before You Go
Glasgow Cathedral is a functioning house of worship, so check the website for any events that may prevent access to the crypts. The church is free to enter, though the hours vary from April to September (9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. ) and October to March (10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.). Access to the crypt, also known as the Lower Church, closes 15 minutes prior. On Sundays the doors do not open until after 1 p.m. The church also gives guided tours that last for about an hour.
Use the stairs to the right to go to the lower church. You will see a tomb with a body outline on your right. At the bottom of the next set of stairs, there is a pillar to your left. The inscription is on the side facing further into the lower church.
