Pattern in Scotland: from concrete murals to ferry furnishings

 Ivy Arch in Edinburgh
Man-made patterns became a theme of interest to me in Scotland and provided a counterpoint to the stunning natural beauty of the landscapes we travelled though. I saw these three huge carved concrete panels on the side of a University of Edinburgh building on the way to Holyrood Park.

At Glasgow Queen Street station I found a glorious technicolour ceramic mural hidden away in the stairwell corridor outside the women's toilets - an unlikely location for this elaborate artwork.

The final set of patterns pictured here are variously from carpets on the ferry to Mull; seating at Edinburgh Waverley railway station; plastic floor tiles in Oban; concrete paving stones in Holyrood; and the front of The Clyde Bar in Helensburgh.
