Welcome to Gilmore House, Bed and Breakfast, Blairgowrie, Perthshire, Scotland

This blog is my random ramblings and photos of what is going on in the B&B, my life, but generally my little jaunts out which I hope will give you a taster of all the wonderful excursions to do in our area.

By the River Tay

A derelict Victorian Greenhouse

The River Tay
Fisherman's Boat on River Tay
Old Kinclaven Railway Bridge

Yesterday I had a wander down by the River Tay at a spot called Kinclaven. Many years ago a railway used to pass this spot, unfortunately you can't get onto the bridge, not that I didn't try though! Shame they don't open it up as it would make a superb walk. Also came across a beautiful old Victorian Greenhouse, now sadly past it's best, but I was surprised to see the grapes still growing away in it. I can imagine what it must have been like when it was being used. I really love old Victorian architecture.
