A series of images of Blackwood in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. Blackwood and Kirkmuirhill are linked together. Photographs of the Kirkmuirhill end of the combined villages are shown here
The photos shown here were taken in one session on a typical Scottish summer's day - sunshine, rain, grey clouds, blue skies all within a couple of hours. I managed to shelter when the rain was heavy. The photographs are arranged as a series starting at the entrance from the road from Larkhall and proceeding to Blackwood Cross along the main road. From the Cross, the photos continue as far as the former Blackwood Care Home. Any further takes you into Kirkmuirhill.
