As Bunty is heading off to Australia next year, in preparation,
she is making a kilt! If you're down and out and work is tough to
get, a hat on the ground and a highland fling should get you your
dinner! Don't you think?
It was a cold but beautifulo day for the end of the trout
fishing season when we all gather to raise monety for the local
school and kirk, a great gathering, fishy songs sung, music played,
faces stuffed with soup and BBQ food and a nip or two to keep the
cold at bay, rounded off by the most epic raffle ever(!) this has
the real feel of a season ended, like harvest festivals or tattie
howking did! It was a strong wind as Chris pulling the boats into
We always make a note of the 'first snow on the Ben' however its
only just struck me that its the first winter,
2103, snow but there was snow on it in March 2013! Anyhooo - you
get my drift! And it's a belter of a day.
Only at the beginning of September but the plants are telling us
autumn is well under way, Dad made the first bramble jelly on
Saturday! Sun is still warm though and I've just had a lovely
coffee, sitting outside at the Woodhouse cafe, Kippen.
Had the most fantastic day at the weekend with my son and his
pals. We went to watch the British Trails Bike cup at Bob MacGregors Trails
Academy on Sunday. What a tremendous venue, big old quarry in
picturequese surroungings, with imported rocks! It is usually a
motor trials course, but for the British Bike Trails Cup
they had adjusted various parts of the courses and it all looked
both challenging and imaginitive.
Brilliant cafe with proper homemade food and a bit of banter
thrown in! which just added to the warmth of the welcome from all
at Bob MacGregors. Hope to get back to see British womens and Youth
motorcycle trials in two weeks time.
