This certainly won't come as news to anybody who subscribes to Flickr's
map tag, but Google Maps has added more-detailed satellite photography for much of the world, including the UK. Unfortunately, the images for Glasgow are still fairly low-resolution, but if, like Gary and Stu, you hail from Paisley, you can probably make out your house.
One slight issue with this photography appears to arise from the projection that Google is using… the images seem to be vertically squashed. (I'm no expert in map projection, but the political/street map uses Mercator, whilst the photography is far more compact towards to poles: since Scotland is much further north than the examples we've hitherto seen in North America, presumably this has an effect.) And they still haven't righted some of the more egregious street misnames.
