                                                 ALL PHOTOS CLICK FULL SCREEN   I needed a set of keys replaced at short notice so after looking online I discovered a Timpsons near me at Byres Road in Glasgow. Oran Mor Church above. They cut or repair new keys for house, office, car, garage etc and also do shoe repairs. It was a busy wee shop as there's not that many shops left that do that kind of stuff. I had a quick attempt online which took ages to jump through ..read more

We parked along Greenock's Esplanade, seen here, above, then walked along it towards Gourock. It was a sunny but breezy day.   At the boat club building a few brave swimmers were bobbing around enjoying the December sea and the wind driven swells.   ..read more
