A selection of images said to have been taken on 1 January 2003.
This was before Geograph was born. I have weeded out some images which were obviously not taken in January (scanning dates may have featured), and a few others which looked very unlikely to have been taken on New Year's Day. Leaving me with 44 images, submitted between 2005 and 2023. They are sorted from (map) north to south. I have added a brief description where there was none.

NG7942 : The Cioch Nose by Doug Lee
View from the entry to Coire a Chaorachain on an cold winter's day whilst on the way to climb the Cioch Nose as illustrated in NG7942 : Climbers on the Cioch Nose. This is an excellent climb at a grade where you can get away without being able to feel your fingers - which on the day was just as well.

The "Middle Ledge" from which the classic Cioch Nose climb starts can be observed as a grassy ledge slanting upwards from left to right and positioned about half way up the face.

NG8409 : Warning sign for walkers at Corran by Roy Tait
So what happens between September 15th and October 20th? Answer: Those dates are reserved specifically for stag stalking and culling. Stags are more territorial than hinds, so it matters more where walkers go during this period.

NJ9406 : Looking down Union Street from the Mercat Cross, Aberdeen by Benjamin Shaw

The building with columns on the corner was built for North of Scotland Bank, by Archibald Simpson. It is now a Wetherspoon pub taking the architect's name. Beyond are the Town House and Sheriff's Court.

NN6094 : Old Summerhouse, Blairgie by Terry Levinthal
This dwelling is a simple timber-framed housed used by the farm and his family at Blairgie as summer accommodation. The main farm house (located about 150m to the west) was let out in summer as holiday accommodation, and provided a useful income. There is a pattern of such buildings in the area. The property is used now as an informal store, and is approaching dereliction.

SE5207 : Markham Grange steam Museum - side lever engine by Chris Allen
This is a grasshopper side lever marine beam engine under restoration and is missing its side levers, connecting rod and crankshaft, to name a few. It is now fully restored with a reconstructed feathering paddle wheel and is turned by an electric motor.

It was built in 1907 by Hepple & Sons of south Shields and was the port engine of a pair on the paddle tug Old Trafford, which later became Reliant and was for many years preserved at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. The single cylinder is 30" bore x 54" stroke.
