“I was in­ter­ested in the re­cent pho­to­graph of the old Kin­ross Fever Hos­pi­tal,” says a Dundee reader. “When I was a teenager liv­ing in Ed­in­burgh, I was pres­i­dent of the youth club in North Morn­ing­side Church. We went to Kin­ross two years run­ning as the build­ing was hired out for groups. This was around the 1950s.

“I re­mem­ber that it was ex­tremely warm in­side as the build­ing was wood­lined cor­ru­gated iron. It’s also in­ter­est­ing to note that we went by train from Ed­in­burgh to Kin­ross, which it is no longer pos­si­ble to do.”

“The but­ter­flies are pretty scarce again this year,” says Eric Niven of Dundee, “but Tentsmuir for­est is a bit of a strong­hold for var­i­ous types – like this tiny Small Cop­per I spot­ted near Mor­ton lochs.”
