 ANOTHER WEE TRIP, NORTH OF THE BORDER



A motley crew the Cornish Club, we like our trips away

This year to Scotland once again, at Elgin we would stay

Our flight delayed we started late to Delfur our first call

The stockman, new, gave a guided tour, their cattle admired by all

The steep terrain, spectacular, then beside the river Spey

Returning back for a BBQ , most welcome at the end of our day .


Day 2 took us to Auchorachan, Michael Durno’s herd to see

Impressive cows, young stock and bulls in fields steep enough for Skis !

The views were quite spectacular as to Glenlivet distillery we sped..

Well ...trundled ! to try some famous Whiskey after we’d been kindly fed.

Next ,off to the Islavale herd , where we were welcomed with a’ Wee Dram’!

Treated to fields of wonderful cattle , then BBQ with the kind Stronach clan

After great food and a fine ‘get together’ we observed a spectacular sight

A beautiful double Rainbow filled the sky as the day turned into night.


On the third day we rocked up at Corskie, to be met by the family, Green.

More whiskey at 10 in the morning ! set us up for the sights to be seen.

Corskie is such a huge enterprise, trucks, cattle , pigs, sheep and much corn

Large fields our whole farms would fit in ! super cattle so admired, that fine morn .

After lunch so kindly provided we set off once again on the bus

To Danny Leslie and the first of his cattle up a steep hill that scared one of us !

Then on to the main bunch of cattle ,some of which were up for sale soon

As he plans to take things a bit easier. We saw grand animals that afternoon

Unbelievable hospitality followed , a feast served up on the lawn

With tables marked ‘Warleggan’ and ‘Poldark’, to make us Cornish feel at home !


Day 4 we had ‘culture’ with a Castle on our way to the airport to leave

                                                            With fond memories of wonderful cattle and amazing hospitality received

Apart from ‘Chaos in the Kitchen’ at Brewers Fair for those early to rise

When a full blown ‘fried bacon fracas’ broke out much to our surprise

Much waiting..wrong orders..cold porridge..stressed staff , fuelled customer’s fears

An irate man complained “there’s no bacon” !! with more language unfit for most ears!

So to calm the hot tempered objector, one of our group intervened

Result..! A coffee stained ex Chief Inspector with a jumper needing to be cleaned !!!

We’ll reflect with a bit of a giggle ,it all adds to the fun that we had

Thank you Scotland ,your country is stunning ,to leave we were all a bit sad.
