Roystonhill Spire
See NS6066 : Townhead-Blochairn Church of Scotland, Roystonhill and NS6066 : Roystonhill Spire for more information on the spire. The photograph was taken from the area just to the south of the spire; there was an inscription there:

"On the 28th of July 2001, messages collected from the people of Royston were transmitted from this spot into space. In space, the messages will carry on forever, while a radio-receiver within Royston Spire awaits a response. On receiving a signal, a red light will flash from the Spire across Royston and let people know."

The spire is a prominent landmark: see, for example, NS6066 : Roystonhill spire / NS6162 : Rutherglen railway station / NS5966 : The M8 Motorway.
