After walking round the High Kirk, I retraced my steps slightly but turned down the other fork of the brae back onto Ferry Brae and round into Milton then down Hillfoot Street.

There's a lovely little square of grass and a local government office housed in a historic building at Milton Avenue.  Down Hillfoot are a few more individual shops and also a school.  Didn't get a piccie of that, but it was an amazing Gothic structure. (Nicked this piccie from Google Images.)

I continued then along Castle Street and turned down Wellington.  The yellow colouration suggests it is the main street access.  It remains at the narrower end of barely two cars width. At the junction where you see Clyde street marked, the opposite street is William street.  On the corner of William and Belmont lane there is set a terrace of tenement flats.  It is one of these I hope soon to reside within!

Okay, okay, I can hear the questions from here...it is the middle floor and the one tucked behind the street light directly above that dark blue car, so you can't really see the flat itself.  But this gives a really good 'feel' of the street. The view up into Bishop's glen is fab and then back down the way is a view right out over the water... You will all just have to be as patient as me for those shots!!!

Do you see what I meant with my menoloop about those dreadful dishes now?  

From here I turned back down and walked through a little foot access alley down onto Victoria Parade. More on that soon....

I would like to send out greetings to my friends and colleagues in both Australia and India for their respective National Days...  Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oi, oi, oi!!!  and JAI HIND!!!


  1. I am struck by all the satellite receivers. Access is ubiquitous, no?
    I could look and and down that street every day, myself.
    Waiting for more...

  2. Yes I hate those dishes too, but what can you do?
    PS Bertie is all excited at the prospect of a walk in the Cowal hills some time...

  3. Hari OM
    Joanne - yes it's a street with appeal!! Soon, soon...

    Bertie/Gail - well, I could take the extension ladder out on a no moon night and my trusty screwdriver. All I need then is a boffin to do the climbing and the 'driving!! No perhaps we ought to stick to a walk up the glen when you and Gail make that visit...

  4. It's an interesting part of the world! All the best finding a place!
    I like seeing your piccies!
