I went down for a look a lunchtime and it's currently in front of Customs House (and behind the public lavies).

BTW, not sure about that Billy statue - unless it's been moved.
It currently sits in a fenced-off grass patch down-from-and-opposite the Provand's Lordship.


It's been moved.


It was there last weekend. It originally stood outside the Tontine buildings in Trongate, then moved to the traffic island at Glasgow Cross, and is now exactly where the good reverend said. There is a rather interesting plaque in front of it, possibly the only monument in Scotland commemmorating the tercentenary of the so-called Glorious Revolution.

Not strictly speaking sculpture, more building decoration... from the former United Distillers building in Waterloo Street.

Was trying oot the digital zoom on my new camera, from the bus queue, not the greatest it has to be said.
