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.

Old Farm Buildings





The field at the end of the lane has now been ploughed over, but before they did I took some photos of some old corrugated buildings that are at the edge of the field. When we first moved here the field was all raspberry canes, something this area is well known for, but the field was sold and given over to arable crops. The farm buildings is where all the raspberries were sorted and loaded into trays for their final journey. It was very interesting having a nosey around, everything just seems to have been left.

Edinburgh





Yesterday the relations trip was to Edinburgh, it was the first day they had overcast weather. They decided to take the park & ride from Queensferry, which takes the pressure off trying to negotiate around a strange city and find a central parking place!! Anyway, they had a very interesting day. They departed back to France this morning from Edinburgh, easyjet now flies to Lyon which is nice and central for them, instead of having the long trip up to Paris.

Glamis Castle


I know I've mentioned Glamis Castle before, but as the relatives went yesterday, I thought I'd share a couple of pictures from their opening day for the season.

Museums and Distilleries





Yesterday's trip was to Tullibardine distillery, which is located at Blackford near Auchterarder and then to the Black Watch museum in Perth. I have had many guests go to the museum and they have all said it is fascinating.

Grand Day Out





Yesterday's excursion took the relations over to Dunkeld, then a stop off at the Hermitage, before heading further up the road to The House of Bruar, which is superb. They then had a stop at Pitlochry before heading back to Blairgowrie.

St. Andrews





My husband has some relations staying at the moment, so yesterday they went on a trip to St. Andrews in Fife, St. Andrews is less than an hour from Blairgowrie. It is a lovely old town and of course is world famous because of the golf and the university. St. Andrews is a very popular destination for my guests, it just oozes history and photographic opportunities. There is also a lovely beach which runs for miles. There is so much to tell about the town, but follow this link for more information.
