Our trips to Inshriach involve several set pieces. One involves a dinner cooked for us by Allan Heaney at the house, and to which the two eldest grandchildren are invited. It will probably be a year or two before the next in line are old enough to join us. Sam and Joel enter into the spirit of the evening, wheeling out their best manners on all fronts. Sam gamely tried not just one, but two of Dan’s oyster chasers.
The previous evening we fetched Fish and Chips from Aviemore and were able to eat it outside, on the upper slopes beside the small lake in the grounds at Inshriach. After, we lit a fire in the hearth and burnt our waste paper and cardboard. A lovely interlude and no washing up 🙂
