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.

Walking and Geocaching at Deuchny Wood

A lovely but cold day today with the mist hanging low in the sky.  Daughter No.1 and I took a jaunt down to Perth to Deuchny Wood to do a bit of geocaching.  We logged an impressive 10 geocaches, well impressive for us!  I think the 'world and his wife and dogs' were out enjoying the sunny winter day today.  We parked at the Jubilee Car park and started off through Jim Aitken's Arboretum.  We seemed to end up going the opposite way from what was intended and got a bit lost in an area of fallen trees but soon got back on track and completed which was in essence a circular walk with a couple of detours.






Many geocaches have 'trackables' in them which you move onto other geocaches, I don't venture far so not really much point in taking them.

Great place for mountain biking






Quite a bit of storm damage


Another 'trackable'

I continue to enjoy your pictures! It looks like you are having a mild winter with very little snow. We just got our first real taste of winter this week here in BC. Very cold temperatures and snow with more in the forecast.

Yes, it has been quite mild this year, very cold today and think some snow forecast for end of week.
