Earlier in the week we spent a lovely couple of days in Perth. One of the walks we did was from Perth to Scone via the riverside walk along the stream in the Quarrymill Woodland Park. The walk starts at the Macmillan Coffee Shop (raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Care), which has a nice selection of scones and other cakes (though you have to go to Scone Palace for the famous Scone of Destiny). We sat outside near the beautiful flower boxes where several hoverflies (like the marmalade hoverfly below) were gathering
