Hello folk! Sorry for not blogging it up yesterday. I ended up on a 12 hour day.
What a day today however. Superb in fact. I was fortunate to have an opportunity to spent 4 or 5 hours at the Scottish Police College located in the Talliallan Castle. The Castle is about 160 years old an has been the training hub for all Scottish Police Forces since 1950.
Inside and out it is steeped in tradition and a real sense of pride. I have included a number of pictures for you to check out. My personal favorite is the 'Peeler', named after Sir Robert Peel, holding the little girl on his shoulder.
The grounds were immaculately groomed and the country air was pungent with the fabulous smell of the local trees. The vegetation from a distance looks similar to home but is actually much more dense and full.
The Castle is just a few kilometres north of the Kincardine bridge. This bridge is the mark of the beginning of the 'Firth of Forth' and the end of the Forth river where it dumps into the North sea at Edinburgh.
Back in Glasgow now for my last night in luxury before the beginning of holidays. I'll be off to Edinburgh in the morning updates to come.........
