Kathleen Glancy - Family holidays at Glenfarg


About this memory

Every summer we took the train to Glenfarg in Perthshire and holidayed at Rossie Ochil a farm, four and a half miles from there.My father took an empty suitcase with him and we came home with it full.Dozens of eggs were carefully and individually wrapped in newspaper until the case was full.My mother gave some of the eggs to neighbours as a rare treat so soon after the war. Family days out on a Sunday included going to Crammond and Colinton Dell by Tramcar. Usually a picnic was packed.We all knew our village neighbours well,but rarely they were referred to by their Christian names always Mr or Mrs although many of the villagers were inter-related.
