PLEASE NOTE:  Most of the links below will take you out of the EdinPhoto web site
BUT you can click on the 'back' button until you return to this page

1.  Cycle-n-Sleep

Steve's Cycle-n-Sleep web site gives details of long distance cycle routes through Scotland -  and the rest of Britain.

The site has photographs, maps, relief profiles, accommodation and other advice including taking cycles by train.

Railway lines in Northern Scotland   -  2005

Thank you to Steve for allowing me to include two of his maps of railways in Scotland on the edinphoto web site.

2.  Directory of Scottish Web Sites

This Scotland Internet site has some very useful links relating to Scotland, including News, Weather, Travel, Accommodation, Business, Art, Cinema,  Photography, History, Communities, Web Cams, etc.

3.  Gazetteer for Scotland

The Gazetteer for Scotland, an internet encyclopaedia for Scotland, claims to be Scotland's first Gazetteer since 1885.  It is still expanding (in 2005) and now has maps, a time-line for Scotland and over 12,000 entries for for individual places.

I have found it to  be a useful source when checking details for buildings and monuments such as the Craigentinny Marbles.

4.  Glasgow's Victorian Photographers.

I've been asked occasionally, if there are any web sites that give details of photographers' studio addresses and dates similar to the EdinPhoto site but for cities other than Edinburgh.

Here is a site that Arthur Low of Eaglesham, Glasgow has produced for Glasgow.

5.  John Butler's Landscape Photography

On this web site, John Butler from Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, England uses his photograpy to illustrate many of his walks, including:

a)  a walk along the Water of Leith in Edinburgh

 A view from John Butler's Landscape Photography web site  -  The Water of Leith, Edinburgh

b) photographs taken on 12 long distance walks in Britain, which together, make up a 1,392 mile route from Land's End in England to John o' Groats in Scotland.

This route passes  passing through some of the deserted areas of Scotland, including Altnabreac Station:

     Photographs of some of the roads around Altnabreac,  part of the North of Scotland Route, passing through Altnabreac Station - from the John Butler Landscape Photography web site

6.  Photos of Scotland

This site has about 200 photos of Scotland by David Christopher of Cupar Fife,  landscapes, seascapes, lochs, castles and wildlife, with more photos to be added in the future.

7.  Scottish Association of Change Ringers

This site includes details of the Scottish churches where bells are rung, and the times of ringing.  I became aware of this site as a result of photographing the removal of the bells from St Andrews & St George's Church in Edinburgh.

 8.  Weather Forecasts - Scotland

This Scotland Snow Forecast site has some useful maps showing forecasts of expected rain, snow, temperature, wind and cloud throughout Scotland over the next few days.
