Some months the images are a mixture of photographs of the West End, photographs of Glasgow and photographs of Scotland.
We recently took some time-out from work and spent a few days in the Scottish borders. I was particularly keen to visit Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott, as I have been reading his diary recently. His home is magnificent and is a refection of the huge success he had as a writer - and the rewards that came with that success.
