The V&A Dundee

A few shots of the new V&A Museum in Dundee which is due to open its doors on 15 Sep 18.  The V&A Dundee is Scotland’s first design museum and first ever design museum to be built in the UK outside London.  The spectacular building was designed by renowned architect Kengo Kuma who’s next project is designing the Olympic stadium for Tokyo 2020.  The V&A is part of a billion pound regeneration of Dundee waterfront which also includes a new railway station, several new hotels, Scotland’s first urban aqua park and Slessor Gardens an open area used for outdoor concerts.  Towards the end of 2019, waterfront place is due to open which will be a landscaped area that includes an urban beach (note – this is not a typo).  All shots taken whilst on a boat tour with Pirate Boats Ltd of Dundee on a very grey day.

Around Mull

A few shots whilst out and about in the paradise island of Mull: the abandoned boats were found just outside the village of Salen and a brief stop was a no-brainer; the castles are Duart and Glengorm, the latter now a hotel.
