Blairgowrie Riverside Update

I last blogged about the work being carried out along the Riverside in Blairgowrie at the beginning of  February , so here is an update.  Lovely new shiny car parking area, vistas being opened up and beautiful carvings dotted along the pathways, I believe there is still some more stone carvings to go in and there is still work being done to walls and paths, but it is looking grand.

 You can view dippers on the river,  a dog had relieved itself on the carving - wasn't my dog - honest. In the summer it is a joy to watch the sand martins zipping up and down over the water.

 Bat carving by the stone seating area.
 Improved views overlooking the river.
 Salmon carving by the viewpoint, where there is an interpretation board telling you all about the journey a salmon makes.
 Wild Garlic carving - wild garlic is abundant and the smell is divine.
 The huge fir and monkey puzzle in the grounds of where used to stand Ashbank House.
Carving in reference to the monkey puzzle tree (I think)
