14 August 2019: Day 4 of our Grand Tour of Scotland: Part 8 – Dundee

Good day everyone,
I hope you are all still in good health and that you are having a fabulous day.
Today we are back in Dundee again. After we visited the RRS Discovery, we drove to the Magdalen Bandstand.
In 1890 they built The Magdalen Bandstand in one of the oldest parks in Dundee, the Magdalene Green Park. The bandstand became an icon of Dundee. On Summer Sundays, you can enjoy live music from the bandstand.
Views of the Tay rail bridge are on the left of the bandstand on the other side of the Tay River, the Fife Skyline.

Between 1869 to 1870, the McCheyne Memorial Church; was erected on Perth Road. a Muscular Gothic Church with Steeple. The architect of this magnificent church was Frederick Thomas Pilkington.
On 20 September 1999, The Dundee Courier reports that the church’s congregation is to merge with that of Roseangle Ryehill and, the church is to close.
Before closure in 1999, also known as St Peters McCheyne Church, having combined with St Peters Church, which celebrated evangelist Rev Robert Murray McCheyne preached from 1836-43.

I have been looking for information on the Blackness Community Library, but did not have much luck. It is such a beautiful building. It is shame that there are not more information on it. Not sure if the name changed and that I am looking in the wrong places. Google was not much help.

On our way to Dundee Law I saw this beautiful church on the left of the road. The streets are so narrow I had to park in the driveway of one of the house just to take a few photos of this beautiful church.

Flower of the day: 9 October 2020

Good morning

I have no idea what to call this flower. I captured it while visiting Inverness in August 2019. If someone can please help me identify it, I would be very grateful. I tried looking in my Collins Nature guide for Wild Flowers of Britain and Europe, but could not find it.

Next time I travel to a country, I will make sure I buy enough books on wildlife, trees, flowers, birds, and the history of that country.

Here is my entry to Cee’s FOTD Challenge.
