Home straight!!!!!

By |11 July 2015|

We came back to reality with a bump, as we returned to the Glasgow area, and Greenock Morton was the next stop. The ground, again like a few others, is not situated in the best of areas, and wasn’t the most enjoyable visit, especially as we never got into the ground! Like Firhill before it, […]

Final day, home straight and finish line in sight! Today we had to tick off a couple Central belt grounds, before heading south and west, before finishing up in Glasgow again.

Tickets were getting sold for the up and coming play off games, so it was quite busy around the ground, but inside, again, were a couple of groundsmen, who let […]

We are blessed in Scotland to have such a wonderful capital city. From the imposing castle, the elegant George street, stunning Arthur’s seat, and that famous Leith sunshine, Edinburgh has it all.

I was very fortunate to spend 5 years studying and working in Edinburgh. I grew to love my adopted city, especially during the incredibly […]

By |8 July 2015|

An incredible amount of preparation went into the the organising of this epic journey.
