The medieval cathedral or the castle.





Or maybe it's the beautiful social security institution building?

Hmm....nothing in my village but not far is Kilmun church where the Dukes of Argyll are buried and where the massacre of Campbells by the Lamonts took place. The remains of the church are from 1646 and the current church was built in 1841.

In terms of modern buildings, Bridewater Place is the most iconic, and the tallest building in the region (probably our statement building of the 2000s building boom/regeneration).

We also have Broadcasting Tower, which has mixed opinions - some consider it hideous, some call it daring and adventurous. It was named the best tall building in the world. It isn't even very tall, but whatever.

Oh, and how could I forget the 30s-50s Art Deco Parkinson Building?

That's all!
