Water of Leith Conservation Trust:

Sunday 14th December. Clean-up. Balerno. 10am – 12.30pm. Meet at Currie Rugby Club car park in Balerno. Take the 1st left after Balerno High School off Bridge road onto Bavelaw Road. Take the next left off Bavelaw Road. As before, we provide all the equipment just wear sensible warm outdoor clothes that you don’t mind getting mucky, walking boots / wellies and bring waterproofs just in case.

I would love to do this but have no means of getting out to Balerno and back except by public transport.

a tree that looks like a face

I thought this was a good Hallowe’en photo. It’s a real tree, and it really does look like that. I wouldn’t go near it after dark.

This is the last house on Stead’s Place: a wing-roofed building, the south side of a square all but invisible from anywhere but this point of Pilrig Park.

Behind the Cafe Truva on the Shore, only visible through an arched gateway in the wall, is hidden this stony, green garden.
