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.

Caputh Bridge and the River Tay

This stretch of the River Tay is the Glendelvine Beat and it was here in 1922 that Miss Georgina Ballantine landed a salmon weighing in at 64 pounds the largest British Salmon caught by rod and reel recorded thus far.

I tried to get into Caputh church once but it was locked. I suppose the answer is to attend a church service, but it's a real shame that village churches have to be locked nowadays. I remember years ago it was common for churches to remain open during the day and I used to enjoy visiting them through the week when there was no-one else there.
