Whilst walking down Buchanan Street on my last day in Scotland (for now!), disappointed a bit at the lack of pipers that usually grace the streets, I came across Andrew Graham nonchalantly busking outside a shop, a bottle of (some would say) Scotland's national drink, Irn Bru, at his feet, and stopped to capture a couple of his sets. He attracted a whole variety of people who stopped to listen or to take a picture with him whilst he was playing (please tip your busker if you fall into this last category!!!).
Buchanan Street is one of the main drags in Glasgow, with quite a number of high-end clothing/retail stores lining both sides of the wide pedestrian walkway. Just off Buchanan Street down either Royal Bank Place or Exchange place (look for the shop with all of the old typewriters), is the Gallery of Modern Art with the well-known statue of the Duke of Wellington right outside its steps, usually seen wearing a traffic cone. The locals have been climbing up the Duke's high pedestal and placing a traffic cone on top of his head for decades now, much to the annoyance of the police, who take it down time and time again.
