Ailsa Craig is a small rocky island which guards the entrance to the Firth of Clyde. This beautiful island is a true living landmark and a familiar sight for visitors to the Ayrshire coast south of Glasgow. It is a well known landmark and is colloquially nicknamed ‘Paddy’s Milestone’, being situated roughly half way on the sea voyage between Glasgow and Belfast. It is about 1200 meters from North to South and 800 meters from east to west, with its summit reaching about 338 meters high. On three sides it is bounded by sheer cliffs; the Barestack at 190 meters is one of the highest overhanging cliffs in Britain.

Bothwell Castle is a large medieval castle sited on a high, steep bank, above a bend in the River Clyde, in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. It is located between Bothwell and Uddingston, about 10 miles (16 km) south-east of Glasgow. Construction of the castle was begun in the 13th century by the ancestors of Clan Murray, to guard a strategic crossing point of the Clyde. Bothwell played a key role in Scotland’s Wars of Independence, changing hands several times.
 
The huge cylindrical donjon was built in the 13th century, but before the rest of the castle was completed it was severely damaged in a series of sieges. Rebuilding in the early 15th century enlarged the castle, but it was abandoned by the 18th century. The present ruin is rectangular, with the remains of the donjon to the west, and the later Great Hall to the east. The courtyard is enclosed by long curtain walls, with round towers at the south-east and south-west corners.

Barrowland, Glasgow
Glasgow’s beloved Barrowland concert hall had humble beginnings as a popular Glasgow dance hall and developed into a legendary rock concert venue feted by fans and musicians alike. Every gig I have been to has had amazing atmosphere I just love the feeling in the place. Don’t expect it to be pretty but if you can get past that it will be a night to remember. Some claim it to be the best venue in the world.

creehal asked:

Nice one man, I'd like to see what you'd make of it, if you do end up doing it, please let me know because you do good work. Keep it up.

andi tracey Answer:

Thanks, will do.

creehal asked:

Have you ever taken shots of The Kelpies?

andi tracey Answer:

Only during the construction. I was thinking of doing a night sky photo (long exposure) some time in winter. But if i am about and the sky/light is right i will grab some in the coming weeks.
