Argyle Arcade

Shopping malls are often thought of as new developments but this one was built in 1827 and was the first shopping arcade in Scotland.

Although named "Argyle Arcade" and one of its entrances is indeed on Argyle Street, the arcade takes a sharp left and finishes on Buchanan Street. Many of the shops sell expensive jewellery and watches.
