12 Days of Perthshire Christmas

When we decided to capture the spirit of the Twelve Days of Christmas using images from across Perthshire we knew we'd be giving only a flavour of the rhyme (what with pear trees being out of season and all the French Hens living in France) but even still, we had no concept of the random calls, emails and hilarious photo-snapping challenges that would follow!

And so, it is with the greatest of pleasure I present to you, Small City's Twelve Days of Perthshire Christmas!

A Partridge in a Pear Tree
Graeme Pallister of 63 Tay Street plucked this little guy into a perfect #LocalHonestSimple roasting bird! 

Two Turtle Doves

Doves and pigeons are from the same family and both love a Perthshire Doo'cot, as captured by Fraser Band.
Three French Hens
Three Perthshire Hens belonging to Dr Ben and chased into a corner for a pic by Kristy Ashton!

Five Golden Rings
Designed and handcrafted by the talented Linda Byers from Byers & Co and popped onto a log for a pic by Cain.
Six Geese A Laying
Flying south rather than laying, but so beautiful in their flight over Errol we had to inlcude this image from Kristy Ashton

Seven Swans A Swimming

Ten Lords A Leaping
Lord Provost  Dr Robert Ritchie and Chairman of The Gannochy Trust Mr W G Farquharson are who we've got to thank for 50 years of Live Active Leisure thanks to a conversation on a train journey where both expressed an interest in building a sports centre for the community.

The Red Hot Chilli Pipers gave a foot stomping performance at the St Andrews Day Festival.

Twelve Drummers Drumming
