Montrose . . .

  A sea mist hung about over the fields this morning until gone 11.00 am, and it never really cleared all day. We had an odd sort of day really. We set off in the mist (sea fret off the North Sea I think) to find our way to the House of Dun by Montrose. This… Read More »

Glamis . . .

Off to Glamis today, but scarcely had we got going when the sat nav (Tom Tom Start 60) began to play up. I have no idea what was wrong with it, but I suspect that for some reason it was not picking up the GPS signal. We abandoned the sat nav, and worked our way… Read More »

Exploring Arbroath . . .

Today we both seem to be sitting about not doing very much. Tired after yesterday I expect. In the late afternoon we went down into Arbroath to look for “The Old Brewery” which we had read about and which seemed to be a likely place to find something to eat. On arrival we found that… Read More »

Catterline and Stonehaven . . .

Monday, 12th September 2016 Arbroath Target for today is Stonehaven, and Catterline. The weather appears to be more overcast than yesterday, but not too dull.

After a quiet day recuperating from driving, we went to a local restaurant at Auchmithie, a hamlet on the cliffs north of… Read More »

We had a pleasant drive to South Queensferry where we made use of the loos in the Forth Bridge Bistro and bought some post cards. We then made our way through the road works and construction of the new Forth Bridge to North Queensferry and managed to park in the street and get into Rankin’s… Read More »

To Peebles . . .

Home to Craiguart House, Peebles We set off soon after 10.00 am and stopped at the Garage for petrol and to check the tyres. The fitter, came up to us and said, “Do you know that your exhaust is blowing ?” “No” (Because I wouldn’t hear it anyway, being deaf . . . ) “Where… Read More »

Old Places, New Places . . .

From the last days of July to the first days of September is the period of the annual Lake Artists’ Society’s Exhibition, an exhibition which has become for us almost a pilgrimage.  We have been over the Pennines to visit for getting on for ten years I should think, and on our way home this… Read More »
