Glasgow:
- St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, 2 Castle Street, Glasgow. The Gallery of Religious Life explores the world's six main religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. In this gallery you can listen to people of all religions talk about their faith and meet the Mexican Day of the Dead skeleton, celebrating the victory of life over death. The aim of the museum is to promote understanding and respect between people of different faiths and none. Displays occupy three floors and are divided into four exhibition areas: the Gallery of Religious Art, the Gallery of Religious Life, the Scottish Gallery and a temporary exhibition space. http://www.glasgowlife.org.uk/museums/our-museums/st-mungo-museum/Pages/home.aspx

- Song School of St. Mary's Episcopal Cathedral in Edinburgh. Phoebe Anna Traquair received national acclaim with her illustration of the Song School of St. Mary's Episcopal Cathedral in Edinburgh. The illustration of the Benedicite Omnia Opera, a canticle used in Anglican or Lutheran liturgy, was started in 1888 and took four years to complete. 
- To the left of the altar in Old Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church sits a memorial chapel. In that chapel hangs a recent piece of church art, Still by Alison Watt. Watt is known for her large-scale works of draped fabric, evidenced by her solo show at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in 2000.
- Catholic Apostolic Church, East London Street. Phoebe Anna Traquair painted the interior of the chancel of the Catholic Apostolic Church, East London Street, Edinburgh (1893–1901), which is also known as ‘Edinburgh’s Sistine Chapel’. The church, no longer a place of worship, is home to the Mansfield Traquair Trust established in 1993 to preserve the building together with Traquair's murals.
