No posts for a few days as I was away at Mar Lodge in Deeside and lacking any internet.  So grey and miserable in Edinburgh today that I have posted a few shots from the weekend. The view towards Inverey from the accomodation.  A stream in Glenshe and an estate near Blairgowrie.

The weather has taken a turn for the worse.  I saw this travelling Subaru memorial to Colin McRae looking all the better with a coating of rain droplets.

Greyfriars Church

How did they manage to bury people that high up?

Transport seems to have become a bit of a theme, quite by accident,(no pun intended there).  This old Austin turns up regularly at the Gym next door.  It has impressive travel credentials.

The finish of this Glasgow to Edinburgh cycling event was in Victoria park in Leith.  All sizes, ages, shapes and conveyances participating.  Choose a 50 or 100 mile route.  Plenty to fill you up when you arrived.

Through in Glasgow today in the Merchant City quarter.  This establishment has simply reversed the word order.

Inchcolm is an island in the Firth of Forth and can be reached by boat from South Queesferry. It has a very well preserved Augustinian Abbey and is part of Historic Scotland.  It still has extensive defence works from WWII.  It gives you a good view over to Edinburgh and there is plenty wildlife.   The liner is anchored off as she is too big for the sea lock in Leith Harbour.
