Within A Days Ride — Fan Of #184 & Lens-Artists Challenge #227

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My entry for this week’s challenge, set by Tina of Travels & Trifles: Home sweet Home. This is also my latest Fan Of… post.

It’s easy to get around our local area by bike. What makes it so easy is the Forth & Clyde Canal that stretches across Scotland, from the Clyde in the west to the Forth & Edinburgh in the East. On a bike, the scenery, sights & sounds all pass by much slower than in a car; plus you’re getting great exercise. As well as having fantasic paths running alongside the canal, there is much to see; such as scenery…


…& an abundance of wildlife & domestic livestock.

There are some oddities to be seen along the canal as well.

The Falkirk wheel; a marvel of modern engineering…

…& of course The Kelpies.

Moving away from the canal, there are numerous old Houses & Tower Houses…

Old & new bridges.

There’s also plenty of opportunities for hill top lunches with fantastic views…

…& some wonderful sunrises.

So if your ever in Scotland, bring a bike & enjoy the sights.

  1. oh gosh, the Highland cow snuggling the calf is a win for me. Captured such expression, emotion. You’ve in a beautiful country. I would welcome a bike tour to immerse myself is such a captivating place.

  2. Thanks for the bike ride around your local area. It is certainly beautiful. I loved the cows. Someday you’ll have to tell us the story behind the kelpies. Beautiful images.

  3. Wow Jez, you DO cover some miles my friend!! I must say I have extraordinarily fond memories of photographing your highland cows; they are too cute for words! Love your image of mama and baby. Also remember the Falkirk Wheel which I’d never seen until I started watching your blog. It’s marvelous indeed. Scotland has much to love as we learned during our visit. Next time though, we’ll rent some bikes!!

Great to hear your thoughts ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
