Another cold day. We were going to go to the Kelpies, but our granddaughter, who is staying with us just now, didn't want go out, so we took a first trip to Bantaskine in Falkirk by ourselves instead (leaving #2 son to "babysit").

The marriage of Declan and Tina, January 25th, 2019, at Registry Office and then to The Boathouse, South Queensferry.

Best wishes to them both!

Willowgate is on the Eastern side of Perth. You'd probably not even realise it's there as it's largely underneath the Friarton Bridge carrying the M90 and hidden from the other roads around it. I really just found it by accident. Turns out that there's an activity centre there (paddle boarding, cycle hire, archery) trout fishery, café and the Perth Sailing Club.

Our first "trip" out for 2019 was a quick hop over to South Queensferry to check out where everything was for our daughter's wedding later this month. A sunny day, so an opportunity to grab a few photos while we were there smile.

A wee walk out on my birthday, including the annual pilgrimage to the cashmere mill (the clothing is a bit expensive but the coffee shop there is quite reasonable wink). Very still day and an almost cloudless sky.
