Balloons

West Linton’s lower green is often used as a favourable launch point for hot air balloons.

This shot was done a few years ago and a quick search on the UK Civil Aviation database shows that G-TNTN is still airworthy and licensed.

Last time I was up in a balloon was near Aviemore and it’s a truly peaceful way to fly. This particular flight was drifting very slowly north, so the shot of the church is what the folk in the basket might have seen just after lifting.
