These photos were taken at Auchentibber Farm on 20th February 2019. The farm has been bought over and currently being tidied up with a view of rebuilding.
A lot of work is going on at the fields around, making them level for resowing and tidying the whole place up. I look forward to the day Auchentibber, (destroyed by fire at the end of 2016) is rebuilt.

Cammy Harris Was just full of old tyres last time I saw it, good for a wander – good to see it getting a new lease of life.
Blantyre Project photos were a couple of months ago. Sadly, some of the tyres are creeping back again!
