The weather was still not ideal but at least no gale warning so we decided to make the 160km trip from Gretna Green up to my home town of Greenock by direct route just to be safe. Arrived in Greenock at my relatives for a couple of days to pay respects and put some daffodils at my Grandparents graves and catch up with some relatives. Enjoyed the hospitality of my Uncle John and and Aunty Margaret (on Dad’s side) ….they really looked after us. My cousin Caroline (on Mums side) organised a trip up to Inveraray and we visited our first Scottish Castle (Where Caroline’s daughter works and got us a family tour free!). We also went into the Village itself where I met some “inlaws”, bought some treacle toffee and liquorice toffee (memories of my childhood)….yum! and saw some landmarks. The weather was not the best but we made the best of it. Thanks to all the family and it was great catching up….if you post the link below in the browser it will show you some general info on my home town.
