The Crown Tower, King's College, Old Aberdeen.

I left Aberdeen as a young child and the Tower was a very special memory of the beauty of Old Aberdeen. I returned home many years later and now walk past it every day on my way to work. It is and always has been a Treasured Place for me.

The one and only place in the world for calmness, stunning scenery and a welcoming people.

It has to be Fair Isle!

George Wilkinson, Uplawmoor,East Renfrewshire

The view from the top of the Kinnoul Hill outside Perth.

Looking down from the top of the crags the city of Perth on the left from which the River Tay flows on its way to Dundee and the sea through the agricultural Carse of Gowrie.Across the river the rolling countryside of Fifeshire backdrops the panorama.

Turn round 180 degrees and in the distance you see the beginning of the foothills of the Highlands.

A childhood memory that remains to this day of the magnificent view following a pleasant walk to the top of Kinnoull Hill.One to which I cannot return to often enough.
