The Main Stairs

Overview

This is the main public stairway within the building, connecting all levels which are available to the Public.

The landings, above Level 0 are semi-circular, with a hand rail that continues around the outside of that space. Alternatively, the rail is broken between flights of steps.

Location

These stairs are on the south side of the building, to your right as you come in through the Main Entrance. Details of the stairwell at each level are included in the description of that level. This page merely describes the flights of steps between levels.

Note that the area immediately to your right as you come in through the Main Entrance is usually blocked by a portable barrier. You'll need to move further into the Strathblane Hall before turning right towards the stairs.

Note also that, as you come in through the Main Entrance, there's a pillar about two metres from the entrance, between the access door and the first (west) revolving door and another pillar about four metres beyond the middle of the two revolving doors.
