The high ratio of trampolines to residents has put the small Scottish town on the map after an unnamed Google Earth user noticed that almost every home had a trampoline on the property.
Apparently, Scottish people really enjoy jumping on their backyard trampolines. Bagpipes are not included!
Pictures of Hillpark Avenue and Hillpark Gardens, made using a mixture of satellite images and aerial photography, show 18 outdoor trampolines in those two streets alone. Can you imagine Sir Sean Connery jumping on his trampoline?
The bird's-eye views, which appear on Google Earth, have now been posted on a website that collects unusual images from around the world. Homes in Beverly Hills are known for having backyard Tennis courts and swimming pools. We think owning a backyard trampoline is a lot less expensive and much more exhilarating!
