Today, I ventured into Glasgow to attend and meeting after which I took opportunity to benefit from the excellent visibility to photograph sites and architecture around the heart of Scotland’s largest city.
This evening, I am reporting on Grantown-on-Spey (pop 2000) which was founded in 1766 when it was established as a discrete ,planned town (unusual for its day in Scotland) by James Grant. The town grew and prospered and today its attractive silver granite buildings are home to a wide number of shops, guest houses, hotels, restaurants and families. Grantown is very well positioned for touring the Speyside whisky distilleries. In the locality there are opportunities for salmon fishing, water sports, hiking, bird watching and visiting gardens.
