The walled garden at Colzium, always a pleasure to walk around especially on a nice spring morning. Saturdy 10 April 2021.
Happy Easter 2021!
Here are some photographs taken around Kilsyth over the Easter weekend. The canal and the Colzium are always popular for walks, especially when we have had some lovely sunshine. Click on each individual photo to see in full. 5 April 2021.
"Spring" is in the air - well the days are definitely getting longer but the temperature keeps changing from cold to warm and back to cold again! What is the saying "March comes in like a lamb and leaves like a lion - or vice versa"? - we will just have to wait and see. Enjoy these photographs taken at the dam, the Colzium and the walled garden.
Here we are in the last meteorogical week of winter! The snow has almost all disappeared and snowdrops are in full bloom at the Colzium; the days are definitely getting longer and a bit warmer. Also, some views from Nethercroy including the "Centurion" as well as the Colzium Burn in full spate. Remember to click on each photo to open fully.
Second week in February and Kilsyth is totally covered in snow - isn't it just beautiful? However, please be safe as it can be very icy underneath the snow. These photographs have possibly been on this page before but the snow makes everything look totally different - hopefully you enjoy them.
Here we are in February already, and good to hear that some people have already been immunised for the Coronavirus and others to be done later this month. Especially for those who can't get out, here are some local photographs taken along Coach Road, the frozen canal and a view up to Castle Hill (looks like a ski slope up there!). Remember to click on each photo to view fully.

Happy Burns Day everyone! It's another beautiful day - blue skies but very frosty. The swans at the quarry are walking on ice and the canal is partly frozen too. However, the days are getting longer and there are signs of spring in the air.

Welcome to 2021! Here are a few photographs around Kilsyth, taken on the second day of January 2021. The first is recognisable to everyone: the Bandstand in Burngreen. The next one is part of the golf course. The following week, icy weather over Kilsyth and the dam was frozen. The next two photographs were taken once the ice started to thaw (12 January). No matter the weather, the scenery around Kilsyth is always beautiful.
Some familiar photos as some of these have been posted here before. However, it's such a lovely area they deserve another viewing! Anyone any ideas where the view of the church tower could have been taken from? These were taken on Tuesday 22 December 2020, now 9 months since initial lockdown of the country. Let's all pray for a healthy 2021.
Frosty scenes around the cooches and the dam, Monday 7 December. Still lovely, no matter the weather.
The first fall of snow on Tamtain this winter - 3 December 2020. A wee bit misty too; maybe some better photos to come.
No colour left at all on the trees now but hopefully some nice reflections on the canal for your enjoyment. Also, had to include our hairy friends, the heilan' coos! Look at those horns.

The days are getting darker and shorter but some lighter days too. Here is a photograph of a tree in the Colzium which had to be felled recently due to some of it already falling and accidentally hitting someone. Hopefully that person wasn't too badly hurt. 16 November 2020.
So nice to see so many wreaths around the War Memorial during this pandemic. Also, a lovely tribute from a young child included. 10 Nov 2020. It has come to light that the little stone was painted by one of the Scouts from the local troop. Well done!
The colours are definitely changing now and there aren't many leaves left on the trees. However, our wee town is still a lovely place with plenty of walks to do. Work is being carried out on the marshes so not sure when it will be open to the public again. Here are a few taken today - 4 November 2020.
Changing Colours. The first three were taken late afternoon. First - Mattock's Hole from behind Register Road, second looking west from Burngreen Brae and third is Market Street. 12 October 2020.
The second three were taken the next morning (13 October) and show the hills from the Cooches, the path behind Stirling Road and the wooden bridge along the lade path. Open each photograph to see in full. Third row (15 October) - Hill Road (past the golf course), The Academy and - is it Tamtain or Garrell Hill? 4th row - various scenes in the Colzium Grounds. 22 October 2020. Within a space of 10 days, the colours have changed quite dramatically.
A few scenes around Kilsyth on a lovely September day. Hopefully they are easily recognisable to everyone. The colours are beginning to change and there is a definite autumn feeling in the air.
