Happy New Year 2011

Happy New Year to you, and Best Wishes for 2011.
We are here in Pitlochry in the heart of Scotland, in Highand Perthshire. The snow is melting on the hills above Pitlochry but it is still very cold and there is not much light here at this time of year : by 4pm it will already be dark.

Look, the High Street seems quite busy and there are no cars: it is Pitlochry Street Party.

Scottish Country Dancing to music from the band in the temporary bandstand and the Vale of Atholl pipe band, complete with bagpipes.

Soup, sausages, popcorn and soup served up by local businesses with the donations going to charity.
