This morning I went round to Pollock House with objective of observing farriers working on the Clydesdale horses. Unfortunately, there had occurred a mistake in promoting this event (which happened yesterday) so I was left with the prospect of just a picture of one of the horses, Duke, but, by way of consolation, I found the immaculately kept gardens which afforded a magnificent display of colours across the spectrum at this time of year. The images are mainly tulips, as shown below.

Elsewhere today:

  • The volcanic ash cloud from Iceland has re-emerged to interrupt air travel with most of Scotland’s airports closed. My niece’s flight up from England was unfortunately cancelled.
  • Received confirmation of a private, ancestry tour from Edinburgh in September.
  • Engaged in further correspondence with a client seeking a castle themed tour from Edinburgh.
  • Designed a High End private whisky themed tour for guests of a local corporate.
  • Posted information on Cabbell family history to my separate Glasgow Ancestry blog.  I undertook some research on the web and discovered that W.B.Cabbell was a co-founder of one of the first banks in Glasgow in the early 19th century.
