I'm pretty sure that there isn't. It would probably be best to contact the Central Mosque in Glasgow and ask them: info@centralmosque.co.uk

It doesn't ? That's good. If I come back to live, it'll be good to get away from all that !

Is it hearing the Adhan that is bothering you, or just life there in general? Personally I love the sound of the Adhan, but then I don't have to listen to it 5 times per day.

I know that every time I hear a particular type of laugh here it sets my teeth on edge. Who would have known that a culture could have a different way of laughing?

If I get to Oban first I will let you know.

If there were I dont think that they'd be allowed to do the call to prayer - they don't do it at the central mosque because there were som many complaints from nieghbours.

Come to think of it Mikey Boab, I work two streets away from the only mosque for our region and have not heard the Adhan once.

There is also a notice asking people attending not to park in front of the mosque in case it upsets the neighbours.

Well that's quite reasonable!

As an aside, I read a really nice article on the BBC about a church somewhere in Scotland (can't remembe where it was) that was allowing an overspill from the mosque next door to use the church facilities for their prayer because there wasn't enough space in the mosque. How cool is that?
