We drove by Callandar, which is a town geared for OLD people. Literally 70 and 80 year olds. It was funny. All the shops had really old looking things. Good times.

The hairy cows were all over the highlands, but Hemish was the first one that we saw!

Oct 27, 1976 - Day trip to Callander

Up about 9am and at 10.30 we all went in Uncle Bills car on a sight-seeing trip to Callander which is the town used for the filming of the TV series "Doctor Findlay's Casebook". It was really beautiful and we spent quite a bit of time looking at the shops (which were full of souvenirs). Went for coffee and scones and then went for a look at "Arden House". Drove home through Perthshire - the autumn colours are beautiful. We got fish and chips for dinner which were lovely, and Uncle Bill made Eve's Pudding. Talked for a while after dinner.
