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. Please feel free to comment and you can also interact with me on Facebook and Twitter.

Kitty Swanson's Bridge 2015

I last blogged about this bridge in April 2010 which is a footbridge crossing over the River Ericht. The old bridge was replaced this year and one evening I went along for a look. I took the easy option and parked along one of the country roads and took a shorter walk down to it.  The new footbridge is pretty spectacular I must say, really fits in well with its surroundings.

An open garden at Forneth

Another wander around an Open garden, this time along by Forneth. I arrived bang on opening time so I could rush and gorge myself on tea and cake before anyone else had the opportunity. Beautiful gardens with the lunan burn running through. There appeared to be a large turnout of people, which is good as it must be very nerve racking opening your garden up for scrutiny. I never did partake in tea and cake.

Glenericht House Gardens

Ten minutes up the road, before you reach Bridge of Cally, on the right hand side are Glenericht House gardens.  The woodland gardens are nestled alongside the River Ericht and are reached by a very long Beech tree lined driveway. There is a magnificent suspension bridge spanning the river and I don't imagine it is used very often as I presume access the main house from the other side.  The garden has many tree specimen's growing to remarkable heights and is a lovely place for a wander.
