I was trying to get to Cauldron Linn on the River Devon and couldn’t work out how, so continued along the track to Muckhart Mill. There are some lovely old stone buildings, and one of them had this very attractive external iron staircase.

There were also beautiful views of the Ochils with the last of the winter’s snow, and the Devon valley.

Sienna is known for Porchetta (roast pork loin) rolls, and in the west corner of the Palio is Salumeria Il Cencio. They have some benches on the first floor with a wonderful view across the Palio. They are reached by this interesting spiral staircase. You can see the benches on Google Earth, if you look closely enough.

When I visited Lasham Gliding Club I asked for a tour round the Gliding Heritage Centre, which has a stunning collection of historical and older gliders, many of which have been beautifully restore to flying condition.  This glider wing was stored upright rather than rigged on the glider.
