Just returned to the sandpit after 17 days in my native Scotland. Despite the bad weather I managed to take lots of photos from the beautiful to the slightly quirky and others which could only be taken in the “Auld Country.”
Here’s the first half – hope you enjoy them! If you click on an individual picture you will see it in larger format and also the caption too.
