We made the most of the spring sunshine today to deliver some Good News Perthshire postcards in the Kinfauns area. In the shadow of Kinnoull Hill, and on the banks of the River Tay, West Kinfauns and Walnut Grove are located in particularly beautiful surroundings.
On the other side of the dual carriageway is Kinfauns Castle which dates back to the early 19th century and Kinfauns church and cemetery where another few houses are located, enjoying stunning views over the valley below.
Kinfauns cemetery apparently dates back 900 years and interestingly contains the graves of a nurse to the Royal Family (1885) and a memorial to someone born in Kinfauns who was tragically lost in the Titanic disaster in 1912.
Perhaps the most thought provoking engraving however is a short poem which it seems was written to encourage visitors to seek forgiveness through Jesus Christ before they leave this world behind.
Flee to Jesus, haste away
Not tomorrow, come today
Come this moment, for to thee
The next may be eternity.
