November 9, 2018 by in

We had a warm welcome when we arrived in the pouring rain at Crosskeys.

Once inside the Cottage we picked up where we had left off a year ago, everything was first class once again.

Brilliant weather on the Sunday temp 14c sunny dawn till dusk.

On the Tuesday a very pleasant surprise a large dear in the shrubs on the left of the green hut,munching away on the low vegetation. Stirling a lovely town to visit, used the train from Helensburgh to Glasgow Queen St Station, excellent shopping 200 yards from the station all the big stores at £7.00 return per person.

This was a most welcome break so much to do if you hunt around even in November.
