Yes Graham. We did a day trip on it years ago to the beach for lunch and horse riding.

Thanks John. A little bit of an internet search helped there.
Which town in UK was I in here?

I was going to say the clue is in the picture but now I’ve looked more closely I’ve found the answer is in the picture.

Middle St, Padstow, Cornwall?
Looks like lots of Stein in that location...

Yes it’s Padstow. I thought Stein on the cafe door was enough clue but then I noticed the little sign on the door on the left says Padstow, Cornwall so it was a bit of a give away.

Thanks eggs - I very much enjoyed identifying some landmarks in your photo then lining up sight lines on google earth to pinpoint the location. I’ll leave it out there for a bit to enable others to go through the same enjoyable sleuthing process. If there are no guesses within the next 24 hours I will have the answer ready.

That be Blair Castle, near Blair Atholl village in Perthshire. Hame of the said private army, the ceremonial Atholl Highlanders, under the command of the Duke of Atholl.
They have a pretty good pipe band too.

Right state, not too far away, but a fair bit downstream from there.

I don't know if you can still buy them here but a once popular brand of T shirt has the same name as this town.
