a lovely, little country church at Findo Gask, near Auchterarder. It’s stone-built with white harling and was built in 1800.  Like many presbyterian churches there are no stained glass pictures on the windows but this church has coloured panes on some windows as well as other windows of plain glass. The third photo is of the back gate of the plot past the graves and leading into a small wood. Displayed on the front gate was a polite notice requesting that you close the gate to keep farm animals and deer etc out! #church #oldchurch #countrychurch #parishchurch #churchyard #gravestones  #cemetery #bitsofbuildings #churcharchitecture #architecture #churchbell #coloured glass #window #backgate #irongate #stonewall #tothewoods #autumnday #countryside #sunnyday #perthshire #rural #beautifulscotland #ilovescotland

an autumn day in the Perthshire countryside. We walked uphill a little way along the edge of a dense conifer forest. Looking across moor, forest and towards hills. At the forest edge hundreds of tiny trees were growing in the boggy plants which love this peaty  soil. #moors #forest #felledtrees #hills #distance #longandwindingroad #perspective #bracken #conifers #deadstuff #autumnday #sunshine #bluesky #littleclouds #whiteclouds #blowthecobwebsaway #peatysoil #view #vantagepoint #perthshire #beautifulscotland #ilovescotland

another look at the remaining tower of the old St Ninians Parish Church build in 1734 and the ‘new’ St Ninians Parish Church built behind the old churchyard. The clock tower has been restored (unsurprising after nearly 300 years!) and the story is that the rest of the church was blown up deliberately by the Jacobites who were using the church as a munitions store. The ‘new’ church is a solid structure which looks built to last! #history #historyonmydoorstep #local #stniniansparishchurch #clocktower #graveyard #jacobiterebellion #1745rebellion #architecture #churcharchitecture #tower #church #bitsofbuildings #autumn #evening #eveningwalk #sundown #fadinglight #eveningsky #stninians #stirling #ilovescotland #beautifulscotland

healthy late afternoon walk by the River Forth near Stirling. Wallace Monument in the distance. William Wallace, who lived in the 13th century, was a Scottish hero of some of the battles against the English. ‘Braveheart’ the film is loosely based on the life of William Wallace. I am certain WW had no hint of an Australian accent, unlike Mel Gibson! #river #tidal #riverforth #swollenbyrain #hills #wallacemonument #reflection #hurrahforbluesky #clouds #autumndays #october #peacefulwalk #muddyunderfoot #localarea #stirling #beautifulscotland #ilovescotland

wrought iron rail on the roof of a local Victorian townhouse. I don’t remember seeing anything like it on other similar houses in Stirling but I may have forgotten or not noticed.... For @trot_a_mouse this in Pitt Terrace, almost opposite the back entrance to St Columba’s Church in Allan Park which I think you recognised last Autumn! #wroughtiron #roof #roofrailing #chimneystack #decorativestone #decorativestonechimneys #windows  #victorianhouse #townhouse #architecture #victorianarchitecture #localarea #hometown #streetsofstirling #autumnmorning #palesky #cloudy #stirling #beautifulscotland #ilovescotland

corner of Barnton Street and Maxwell Place in Stirling city centre in sunshine. I like the little decorative rail above the barbers on the corner. Hadn’t noticed the curve on this side of the street before. #tenement #bitsofbuildings #firstfloor. #secondstorey #chimneys #baywindows #windows #shops #slateroof #tower #barbershop #sunnymorningbluesky #clouds #towncentre #stirling #lookup #mycity #scotland #beautifulscotland #ilovescotland
same part of Stirling town centre on 2 separate days. The back of Stirling Sheriff Court building, shops,offices and churches.

history almost on on our doorstep. The steeple of St Ninians Church is part of the parish church built in 1734. The church was used to store weapons during the 1745 Jacobite rebellion and somehow most of the church was blown up! A few fragments of building remain but this tower is the only complete part. So the tower of the old St Ninians Church on an autumn evening. #steeple #tower #clock #clocktower #parishchurch #architecture #churcharchitecture #history #bitsofbuildings #dressedstone #dome #localarea #churchyard #evening #dusk #eveninglight #stninians #stirling #scotland #beautifulscotland #ilovescotland

Helix Park Falkirk on an autumn afternoon. The wooden building on the decking is a waterside cafe beside a small wildlife and boating lake. The cafe was closed but we saw young swans on another pond nearby. Helix Park is famous for being the Home of the Kelpies-beautiful, huge metal sculptures of horses. I’ve posted lots of Keplie photos before but forgot to take any this time.

last photo from Bannockburn House, a dilapidated 17th century house near Stirling which we visited on the driechest ( most miserable,  dull, rainy ) day possible. The interior of the house is mostly bare and, in some rooms, destroyed by fire. This lovely wooden staitcase was shut off from the public. I didn’t hear how old it is. #staircase #bitsof buildings #interior #17thcenturyarchitecture #spindles #woodenspindles #scottisharchitecture #oldhouse #decay #beautyindecay #wood ##workmanship #bannockburnhouse #bannockburn #stirling #scotland #beautiulscotland #ilovescotland

Bannockburn House was built in the 1600s. Many years later an owner decided that what his house needed was a porch. This is it, looking from a first floor window onto the top of the porch on the wettest of days. A day like this makes me think a place for wet coats, boots and dog leads was a good idea! Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed over in 1745 apparently! #porch #addition #architecture #scottisharchitecture #porcheithaview #looking out #stoneball #roof #stonework #whitesky #rain #scottishrain #cloudy #cloudyday #greysky #trees #bannockburnhouse #bannockburn #stirling #scotland #beautifulscotland #ilovescotland

the roof at Bannockburn House on a day so grey that the sky was almost white and the windows dirty enough to show up on photos!  To be fair, there is so much renovation work needing to be done on this 17th century house that clean windows won’t even be on the list. The roof (complete with creeping vegetation) reminded me of the scene in ‘Jane Eyre’ where Jane takes solace walking on the leads of Thornfield Hall. Sadly we weren’t allowed to venture out in the rain onto the roof. #roof #flatroof #crenellated #viewfromthewindow #chimneys #leadflashing #rooflantern #chimneylevel #ataheight #architecture #scottisharchitecture #conifers #talltrees #inthedistance #creepingvegetation #bannockburnhouse #17thcenturyarchitecture #wetandwindy #greyday #cloudy #cloudyday #almostwhite #janeeyre #ontheleads #ontheroof #bannockburn #stirling #beautifulscotland #ilovescotland

another window at Bannockburn House. Looking down on the back of the house. See the shrub growing out of the down-pipe. #window #windowpane #view #roomwithaview #architecture #history #oldhouse #neglected #decay #17century #rain #gloomday #greysky #oldconifers #bannockburnhouse #bannockburn #stirling #beautifulscotland #ilovescotland
Bannockburn House again. Looking out of the grubbiest of windows at tall trees. Whether the windows were painted or varnished originally, the wood has been bare for a long time. I like the silvery grey but nimby (so to speak!) The volunteers must feel overwhelmed at the massive amount of work needed in this once- grand home. There was a spout of water coming from a hole in a down-pipe to the left of this window plus a lot of vegetation in the gutters. #window #roomwithaview #throughthewindow #constantrain #gloomyday #trees #dirtywindows #barewood #oldhouse #bannockburnhouse #history #architecture #housetour #neglected #decay #bannockburn #stirling #beautifulscotland #ilovescotland
