Glasgow Christmas Decorations

Okay, okay, I know it’s only November and there are those who wish all the razzmatazz about Christmas would be confined to December. But it is now only one month until Christmas Eve and I was in Glasgow City Centre with time to take some shots. Read more

The Second Linlithgow Classic Car Day

Following the first stage of the Second Linlithgow Classic Car Day (2011) to South Queensferry, the classic cars returned to Linlithgow for a meet-up in the town’s market square and at the Linlithgow Palace car park.

They were not racing at this point and different Tall Ships were to call in at Campbeltown, Oban and Ullapool en route to Lerwick. Read more
