Dumbarton, River Leven and River Clyde from Dumbarton Rock

These are the good lady’s photographs. She took them while I was at one of the play-off games at The Rock, in May last year.

Somewhere else she used to play was in this burn by the Swing Park. Well, that’s what it was always called when I was young. It’s apparently known officially as the East End Park:-

Drymen, Stirlingshire

Drymen (pronounced ‘drimmin’) is a village in Stirlingshire, Scotland.

Main road through the village.

Road Through Drymen, Stirling District

The village is now bypassed so there’s not too much traffic but you have to go through it to access the road to the east side of Loch Lomond and the foot of Ben Lomond.

Shop and War Memorial. The War Memorial is behind the road signs.

Drymen War Memorial. Dedication reads, “The Great War 1914-1918. On this Memorial are inscribed the names of the men of this parish who at the call of King and country left all taht was dear to them endured hardship faced danger and finally passed out of the sight of men by the path of duty and self-sacrifice giving up their own lives that others might live in freedom. Let those who come after see to it that their names be not forgotten.”

Ben Lomond From Dumbarton Football Stadium

A snow-capped Ben Lomond on 2/5/2015. Photographed from stand of Dumbarton Football Stadium. Ben Lomond is the only Munro I have climbed. (I say climbed. There’s a path. You can walk up it.)

On the same day and from the same location I took this photo of Sons players applauding the fans after the last game of the season vs Raith.

End of Season Farewell

Most of these players have now left the club.
