Welcome to our online presence

It has been designed to tell you about Freemasonry and in particular, Freemasonry in Glasgow. In addition to providing information about what we do and where and when we meet, we have tried to be as open as possible and to dispel some of the myths and folklore which surround Freemasonry. We do have special ways of recognising each other, we do have members' only meetings and like many other organisations, some activities are confidential to our members. The abiding principles of the order are friendship, charity and honesty and all members endeavour to live by these principles. We raise money for local, national and international charities, exclusively from within our membership.

Friends and Brethren I would like to welcome you all to the website of Provincial Grand Lodge of Glasgow.

I became the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master of Glasgow in 2014, This is the greatest honour that any Freemason can have bestowed upon him, First let me say a big thank you to the brethren of the province of Glasgow for affording me the honour and privilege of serving as RWPGM for the ensuing 5 years, and they can rest assured of my full commitment in the coming term. On the day of my installation, i had the honour of being installed by the Grand Master Mason of Scotland Bro Charles Iain Robert Wolrige Gordon of Esslemont., and was delighted in the way he handled the business of the day and all the brethren who attended were treated to an excellent installation ceremony indeed. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our members and visiting brethren who made my installation very special indeed and i hope to carry on the good work that has gone before me with the help from my newly elected team of office bearers and I take this opportunity of extending an invitation to Lodge Members, and visitors alike to come along and support the Lodge, and you can be assured you will receive a very warm welcome indeed.

This website is designed to provide information about the Lodge and a short history has been compiled , which we hope you find informative. Our Regular Meetings are also listed and I look forward to welcoming any Brother who may wish to visit our Lodge at any future time. We have ambitious plans to add more content about our Lodge and freemasonry in general. Please take the time if you can to revisit this website as it will be updated regularly. So please take your time looking through our site and enjoy.

It was with great pleasure on Wednesday 11th April 2018 the RWM of Lodge The Prince’s No. 607, Brother Iain T. Gordon, in the company of The Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master of the Province of Glasgow, Brother James C. Peddie, presented a Diploma of Distinguished Service Membership to Brother James R. Forbes MM in recognition of his outstanding service to the Lodge.


Jimmy was initiated into Lodge The Prince’s 23 years ago and for almost 20 years has been President of the Board of Stewards organising the dining arrangements as well as the hugely successful annual ‘Ladies Night’ which has been a long-standing Lodge tradition.


Being a Dining Lodge there is an incredible amount of work involved in catering for the Brethren at every meeting and the Annual Installation, however, Jimmy does it in his own quiet way, without any fuss but with great efficiency.


There are many unsung heroes within Lodges and Jimmy definitely comes into that category. It was therefore only right and proper that his great friend Past Master, Ian A. Macpherson MBE, made sure his dedication and years of outstanding service to the Lodge was formally recognised with this award.


The Diploma was Presented in open Lodge to great applause from the Brethren and much to the surprise of Jimmy himself, speaking after it he said:


I am humbled but greatly honoured with this award and I would like to thank the RWM and Members of the Lodge for this recognition, it has been a delight and pleasure serving Lodge The Prince’s’
