Re: Spectacular Scotland pics

Here's something different for you.... Rock formations at Sunnyside beach. This can only be reached on foot .
With a bit of imagination, you can see faces in the rocks ...



Gardenstown harbour... once a fishing port, now mostly holiday homes and leisure craft..

More nice pics Grumble. We're off to Portpatrick next weekend. I've never been there, so looking forward to taking more pics

Re: Spectacular Scotland pics

Neither have I, although I'm well aquainted with the A77 up to Glasgow and the A75 down to Dumfries. Happy days with my Morris Minor before most of the small towns were bypassed.... Gatehouse of Fleet, Newton Stewart, Castle Douglas etc ... still, it makes the drive easier.

One of my earliest memories of the area was the sinking of the Princess Victoria which got into difficulties off Port Patrick on 31st Jan 1953.

The arena where the Braemar highland games take place. Centre left of picture is a small white pavilion where the royal family sit to watch the games.



Locomotive from the Royal Deeside railway. Closed in 1966, a stretch from Crathes toward Banchory has been restored and provides a short trip during summer, bank hols etc.. Either steam or diesel locos - you can get a special ticket to ride on the footplate for the journey.



The station building at Crathes was originally at Old Meldrum.

Change of plan today because of the weather. Went to see the spectacular Kelpies
instead.

Then off to Culross (pronounced Koo-Ross). Beautiful conservation village.

A quaint stairway
