The Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Narrow-Guage Railway runs from Ravenglass to Dalegarth Station near the village of Boot in Eskdale in the Lake District. The line opened in 1875 to transport hematite iron ore from mines around Boot to the Furness line at Ravenglass.
It was many years since last visiting the railway and doing some of the walks from the various stations but I was pleased that it was much as I remembered it.

Part of the SRPS railtrip to the Clyde Coast was an optional ferry trip to Rothsay on the Isle of Bute.
The large pavilion glasshouse above was bought by the 6th Marquess of Bute from the Glasgow Garden Festival in 1988 and with some decorative additions it forms the centrepiece of the Kitchen Garden.
