The First Captain’s Company of Henry Tillier’s Regiment at Dumbarton Castle

After Greenock it was a trip up and across to Dumbarton Castle.

Historic Scotland had an event with The First Captain’s Company of Henry Tillier’s Regiment taking centre stage.

As with all such like events it proved to be both informative and enjoyable.

Some time was spent in conversation with the group who were happy to answer any questions.

Well worth the time and effort in getting to see them after such a busy day today.

Scottish Western Thoroughbred Vehicle - Car Event in Greenock

After seeing the participants in the Gumball Rally it was a run down to Greenock to see cars of a more vintage sort.

The event was very well attended and the owners were friendly and informative as they chatted about their pride and joy.

More importantly perhaps, it managed to sat dry.

Gumball 3000 Rally - Scotland

This year's Gumball 3000 Rally starts it's European leg in Edinburgh this morning.

The cars arrived at Prestwick Airport by plane on Saturday night.

I travelled down to Prestwick very early this morning to get some images to document the event.

Originally the cars were to leave at 07:30 but a few delays held things back till about 08:45 but it was worth the wait in the nice weather.

 Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini, plus other manufacturers made their way through to The Mound for the start of the marathon drive to Ibiza.
