Head in the Clouds

A view from the top of Kinnoull Hill, Perthshire, Scotland on a foggy day. Well, foggy at ground level at least.

Next time it’s foggy, head for the hills! Oh, and take a map and compass.

Birks of Aberfeldy in January

A long exposure photograph of a small waterfall at the Birks of Aberfeldy.

This area was made famous by Robert Burns’ poem The Birks of Aberfeldy which he was inspired to write by the Falls of Moness, one of the larger waterfalls in this area of Scotland.

The Path to Kinnoull Tower

Kinnoull Hill is a hill located in Perth, Scotland.

From the hill’s 222m south-facing cliff summit, views are afforded of the River Tay, the Friarton Bridge, and a stretch of the Tay Coast railway line. Further to the south, Moncrieffe Hill can be seen.

On an outcrop a few hundred yards to the east of — but visible from — the summit is Kinnoull Tower. Built in the 18th century by the 9th Earl of Kinnoull, the tower, along with nearby Binn Tower, is meant to resemble the castles on the Rhine in Germany. The tower is easily accessible via a footpath.

Kinnoull Hill

Ever since I was a child, sitting in the car as my family drove past this location many a time, I’ve always wanted to get to the top of this hill just on the outskirts of Perth.

Today I finally got around to doing it. Here is the view from the top looking South East.
