The collection of photos taken on New Year's Day, one from each contributor, has been run in the Themed Topic Forum for a number of years.
Some people take active part and add their photos to the forum thread, as well as attaching the shared description to their image. Many others take the photo and submit it to the site, but don't post to the forum. Others go out for lengthy walks with their cameras and take lots of photos.
I thought I'd bring all these groups together - a total of 91 photographers. I've arranged the images in more or less (map) north to south order and added a brief description where there was none.

NN3609 : The old military road by Malcolm Neal
The military road was built so that soldiers could move quickly during the time of troubles in the 1700's. It is only about a metre wide but was so well laid that it is still a good walkers' path and the modern road runs very close to it between Inversnaid and Trossachs Pier.

NT3173 : Porty Beach by Richard Webb
Looking along Portobello Beach from the Joppa end. Some out for a dip, even though the Summer temperatures of December 2015 had left for more traditional New Year's Day weather. (I was out for a run on the bike and am still thawing out as I type this at home).

The Portobello coastal rowing club are out as well (background).

NT6136 : At the Brothers' Stones on New Year’s Day 2016 by Walter Baxter
It was the ideal day for a walk up to Brotherstone Hill in calm frosty conditions, but also a grey sky with the sun struggling to break through. According to folklore, two brothers went overseas in search of fame and fortune, and on their return each was unaware that they had followed different faiths, one being protestant and the other catholic. An argument over their respective religions resulted in the two brothers duelling, whereby they both died of sword wounds. The legend says that local people erected the two standing stones to mark where the brothers fell and were buried.
