THE TRIP - Summer 2016

On Tuesday 7th June we left Abernethy on our annual trip with glorious sunshine as a bonus. First call was to see the new Queensferry Crossing Bridge which is a sight in itself. Being in the bus gave a better view rather than travelling in a car. What a tremendous sight all three bridges will be when completed, and it will certainly put Scotland on the map.

Travelling north again we went into Fife and on to Leven for a comfort stop at Blacketyside Farm shop and restaurant where lovely tea, coffee, scones, homemade jam and traybakes were set on a buffet. Very pleasant.

Back on the bus and on to Anstruther and the villages coastal route finishing at St. Andrews. Sun still shining, we went our separate ways all seeking the famous ice-cream shop, which I eventually found and it was worth looking for. Did not have much time to sightsee as the bus was picking us up in just over one hour. We travelled to Dundee over the Tay Bridge and on to Perth where we had booked our meal at the Mustard Seed. A well presented, delicious meal was had by all. There had been heavy showers at home which we missed on our day out, so did not have to water plants that night.

A truly relaxing day with great company, and I wish to thank Eileen and Margaret and all the committee for organizing a superb day out.
