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.

Blair in Bloom 2014

Last week the B&B picked up it's award certificate and shield from the yearly Blair in Bloom competition. This is the second time the garden has won 1st place. Once again the town centre and surrounding areas looked stunning all due to the volunteer work of Blair in Bloom.

The Kelpies

The Kelpies are resident at The Helix in Falkirk. Falkirk is approx. an hour from Blairgowrie, but also an easily accessible stop off going to or coming from Edinburgh. The Visitor Centre for The Kelpies will open in 2015. A visit to The Kelpies could easily be combined with a visit to the Falkirk Wheel

Junior Ryder Cup Blairgowrie

This afternoon was the Opening Ceremony for the Junior Ryder Cup here in Blairgowrie,  North Britain. Today and yesterday were the practice sessions.  I walked along yesterday for a look and we had some fun in the area set up for children to try their hand at golf. They got a really impressive goodie bag as well. Very busy week in the B&B with the main Ryder Cup being held at the mighty Gleneagles.  The Ryder Cup is a team golf competition between the USA and Europe.
Interestingly there will a referendum, in 2017 I think, to vote whether or not the UK should stay in Europe. Anyway, no more political talk from me. Watch the grassroots grow, 'O flower of Scotland' has wilted somewhat.
