Whit's it a' aboot?

This blog is going to be my place for blethering about all sorts of stuff...........................stuff that pisses me off,stuff that makes me happy,stuff that interests me and stuff that's just stuff! I'll be regularly adding photos I take on my travels around Scotland,particularly here in my home town of Perth! I do tend to be a tad opinionated,but I'm always prepared to listen to a reasonable argument,as long as it agrees with mine! Hopefully it'll be fun,even when I'm having a wee rant!
