The banks and braes of bonnie Scotland are calling!

During the first week in May we have rented a cottage for a week, just outside Irvine in Ayrshire.

It is now a few years ago that we took the Morgan to Scotland (see my post of 27/10/11 or 'Miscellany', July 2010 edition) and we are looking forward to another dose of Scottish life in Ayrshire the county in which the great bard, Robert Burns was born and lived. We shall of course be visiting the Burns Museum in his birthplace, Alloway, near to Ayr.

We'll visit other Scottish National Trust properties while we're there, one being Brodick Castle on the Isle of Arran which we are looking forward to tremendously, but whether or not we pay the £70 ferry fare to take the Morgan for the day, in addition to our foot passenger fares, is open to question.

I must admit that I am getting quite excited by the prospect of a week away with 'Nellie' and will shortly be getting things together for the trip, suitcase, luggage straps, checking levels, final polishing etc., etc., or to put it another way, all those 'desperately important' things that are imperative and get me out of the house and into the garage.

Yippee! can't wait. Just hope that the weather is nice.
