The Sixty Steps are a much-loved feature of Glasgow's West End. The steps which connect Kelvinside Terrace to Queen Margaret Road were designed by Alexander "Greek" Thomson in the 1870s to provide access to the original Queen Margaret Bridge. The bridge across the River Kelvin has since been demolished, and the Greek Thomson Sixty Steps are currently in need of restoration.

Our Aims

The Trust's ultimate objectives are to preserve and restore the steps and gardens for continued public use and enjoyment. Also to refurbish and repair the wall, steps and embellishments as well as to replace the railings and lights.
