Liking the photo of the Lumo train speeding past Dunbar. A ground I keep meaning to get to but have not managed yet. (There's a long list of such grounds, but I'm whittling them down.)

In true Daniel Gray style, I do love a train journey where you can catch even a merest glimpse of a football ground. Especially if you can get a good view inside, of which Irvine Vics must be the pinnacle.

Which grounds in Scotland can you get a decent glimpse of from a train?

A pointless list compiled off the top of my head, where have I missed?

Hearts
Ross County
St Mirren

Arbroath
Ayr Utd
Hamilton
Morton
Raith Rovers

Stranraer

Banks O'Dee
Clach
Nairn County

Berwick
Cumbernauld Colts
Edinburgh Uni

Dunbar Utd
Linlithgow Rose
Luncarty
Tynecastle FC
Tweedmouth

Auchinleck
Campbeltown Pupils
Greenock
Irvine Vics
Lanark
Pollok
Port Glasgow
Saltcoats

You can also see Stonehaven from a train. And I'm not sure about Campbeltown, definitely no regular railway line there, unless there is a heritage one I don't know about?

Campbeltown was a wee joke on my part. The nearest station must be Girvan?

Although that being said, the Machrihanish to Campbeltown railway ran directly past Kintyre Park (until 1932). There's a nice wee path that takes you from the ground over to the town centre which follows the old railway line.

I'd suggest it is probably somewhere like Colraine as the crow flies!

Thornhill 5-5 Balfron Rovers @ South Common Park on Friday night. F&E Cameron Cup 🏆 R2 1st Leg and a great game to finish my 2021-22 season 🔚. Thornhill always ahead (1-0, 3-1 & 5-3) but were reduced to 10 men 🔴 after an hour and Balfron levelled. All to play for in the 2nd Leg. Crowd 37.

Keiss 5-2 Top Joe's
Caithness AFA Division Two
A trip to the far north this weekend. A massive slope on the pitch, but absolutely stunning surroundings for football. I was there with a group of Dutch people, Top Joe's were short of players and asked us if any of us play football, they got 2 from our group. A 16 year old boy, the son of a friend of mine, scored for them!

Love this! Grandad played in goal for Keiss many moons ago. Many a summer playing here - might even have one leg shorter than the other as a result..

Spartans 2-1 East Fife PSF @ Ainslie Park 🌱. Less than 18 hours after the previous one ended, I got season 2022-23 🆕 underway on Saturday with a decent game between Lowland League and League 2. The visitors ahead early on but Spartans turned it around with 2 late goals. Crowd 150.

Seriously needing my football fix. Nothing planned as yet on Friday night so might take my first trip up to Tranent's ground to see them play a Hibs XI. I'll need to get something squeezed in as the Hearts fixtures aren't kind to me. I'm away next weekend so missing the Bonnyrigg friendly, away to Berlin on the opening season of the weekend, and the Edinburgh derby in August due to TV coverage coincides with my amateur teams opening day. Crap.

I'm away to Saltcoats next weekend as my girlfriends family have a caravan there. Was pleasantly surprised to find their junior ground right beside the caravan park. Looked at the fixtures though and they're at home Wednesday 6th and Monday 11th, I'm only there 8th-10th. :(

That said, I'm looking to get a game under my belt in Berlin. DFB Pokal kicks off that weekend and Viktoria Berlin host Bochum so hoping to get to that.

Might even get a few Hearts B games under my belt too. 🙈

Been well over a calendar month for me! Last game was Everton Vs Crystal Palace on the 19th May. Got some of the Women's Euro games coming up though, starting with the opening match at Old Trafford next Wednesday.

Viktoria Berlin 1-3 Union Berlin

First ever game of German football for me. Effectively FC Edinburgh v Hearts apart from if they didn't knock down Old Meadowbank and an East German designed it. Also played the Union song before the game which was a bit minteriffic. Union did play there for a season though so that might have been why. Seats were colourful but made the benches in the old stand at Cowdenbeath seem plush. Union a far better team and deserved winmers. Good evening out even if people being able to drink and smoke takes a bit of getting used to.f4cb97e2072b286c43d107571c746f54.jpg8540ffcf6f0c4df212aec83c0fc70aa9.jpg7880da9c1f6fc5a2f9acc354e44bc821.jpg4e57640042fabb4d299b436afba29f1d.jpgee23e918e4a3b49e7b3d1ad02908f23a.jpg

Raith Rovers 1-2 Queen of the South @ Starks Park 🌱, Kirkcaldy. Willie Gibson’s new look Queens got pre-season off to a winning start in a good run out. All the goals ⚽️ coming in the 2nd half, the visitors winning it 20 minutes from time. Crowd of around 600.

Ayr United 1-1 University of Washington Huskies 

Something a wee bit different today and a well contested pre season friendly between two well matched teams at Cumnock. A bit of a bucket list item as well getting to see a Huskies team play in the flesh. Some biblical rain in the first half!

Ardrossan are at home to Cumnock on the 9th. That's not far away.

Deanston 10-2 Killearn
Forth and Endrick League
The game was a clash between 2 sides that have been doing well this season, but it turned out surprisingly one-sided. Killearn did have some chances though but they were very poor at finishing. Deanston could even have scored more, but once they scored their tenth just after the hour mark, they took their strong striker off and were happy with the score.

Jeezo, didn't expect that scoreline!
