No photos of hearts or flowers. Just places where something romantic, passionate even, might happen or have happened beside something red.
Enjoying the sun and atmosphere of the Edinburgh International Book Festival
Cottages at Newton, Loch Fyne, Argyll – a wonderful place for a romantic break
The Moulin Rouge, Montmartre, Paris – lots of red and romance associated with this.
Enduring red. Enduring love. Robert Burns till a’ the seas gang dry an’ the rocks melt wi’ the sun love.
Couldn’t resist this sign at St Abbs in Berwickshire. Stop signs appear everywhere…even in romance.
Fancy a romantic sail on St Mary’s Loch in the Scottish Borders?
Lots of bustle, boats and seals to watch on a trip to Eyemouth Harbour, Berwickshire.
No shrinking violet of a property in Ireland
A wonderfully quirky courtyard cafe in Tallinn, Estonia
Soothing tranquility for that special meeting in the Japanese Garden, Lauriston Castle, Edinburgh

Wherever you are, I hope your Valentine’s day glows.
