Landmarks Challenge 2012

Way back in February "mr combo" set us a Landmarks Challenge . It's taken all year, but here's mine.

No.1 - Castle - One of Scotland's best known: Eilean Donan

No.2 - Telephone Box - Cowal Peninsular

No. 3 - Mail Box  - South Queensferry

No. 4 - Flag - Eyemouth

No 5 - Animal - Highland Coo, Glen Douglas
No. 6 - Bridge - Tay Rail Bridge, Dundee

No. 7 - Body of Water - Firth of Forth at Burntisland, Fife
No 8 - Church - Kilfinan Parish Church

No. 9 -  Barbers - Shawlands, Glasgow
No. 10 - Scrap yard - Gartocharn. This was the hardest to find. The old fashioned scrap yard with junk piled high is a thing of the past - in the West of Scotland anyway. Planning rules mean they are screened from public view. This vehicle recycler is the nearest I could get. 

No. 11 - Station - Maxwell Park, Glasgow
No. 12 - Stadium - St James, Newcastle

No. 13 - Ship - Inverarary

No. 14 - Graffiti - Or is it art?, St Andrews

No. 15 - Statue - Ayr

No. 16 - Rust - FJ disc after winter lay-up
No. 17 - Rain - CBF filler cap

No. 18 - Petrol Pump - Old pump at Portinnisherrich on Loch Awe

No. 19 - Road Sign - At the start of the Bealach na Ba, Wester Ross

No. 20 - Memorial - War memorial, Sandbank, Dunoon on the Holy Loch


  1. Great photos as usual, Stuart.
    It looks like you got good weather for most of it as well.

  2. Thanks, Mike. The advantage of being a "man of leisure" is that I can take advantage of any day the weather's good to get out for a ride.

  3. Congratulations. Hmmm, less than a month left of this year...don't know if I'll be completing this one...but then...

    1. You don't have to actually finish it. Just do as many as you feel like (and remember to show us the photos).
