East Coast Adventure

Since the weather has been pretty great of late the wife and I decided on doing a little bit of sight seeing on Saturday.

We did a scan for events that might be of interest online on Friday night and spotted that there was going to be a highland games up in Ceres not far from St Andrews so we decided to make a day of it.

The Highland games in Ceres have apparently been on the go since 1314! It seems the town was granted the right to a Highland games by Robert the Bruce in gratitude for their contribution at the battle of Bannockburn.


2014 will be the 700th anniversary of the games in Ceres!!!


No Highland games would be complete without a traditional pipe band dressed in tartan.

And some Scottish Highland dancing.

After we had filled up with culture we made the short drive along to the coast to the beautiful town of St Andrews (home of world golf)
A nice bit of movie trickery here as these guns are actually solid plastic!!!

Next stop Crail. My parents brought me to Crail when I was but a lad and I still have fond memories of the place. It's a little gem of a town

And finally we stopped off in Anstruther for a nice meal and some chilling out before back home for a couple of glasses of red. A fine day indeed ;-)

Hi Mr P good to hear from you again. I have taken a break from naps as it doesnt seem to be the in thing at the club a the moment. Thanks for the kind words Mr P.

I am busy shifting my old toys(subbuteo mostly) on ebay so the block has taken a back seat.

Thanks for the comments guys.
