Day 2 of the CAMRA Weekend, and an early start for Dundee with an advance ticket beautifully stamped with a cutout of a choo-choo train. Just for Tom Irvin.
My seat gave me a prime view for an on-board ScotRail art piece called “Extreme Noise vs The Wedding Present”.
The noisiest wrapping in the history of Scotdom. I nearly said “Oh, give it here“.
This is the best I could do with the Forth Bridge, a mighty piece of engineering best observed from the water (as a fish).
Dundee sparkled on Friday.
Scott “Scot” Campbell of Aberdeenshire Branch had arrived early to greet early CAMRA arrivals with a rousing rendition on pipes of “Get Up And Bar The Door (against the craft keg)”
The CAMRA goodie bags weren’t available till 4pm, so I had time to kill.
A quick look at the new V & A, a giant of modern architecture.
But most of the space had been given over to the cafe, restaurant and shop, and the queue to the design gallery was bigger than the queue for Tennents at the Members Bar, so I headed off to Perth for some ticking. And a BrewDog.
I’d chopped the Scotland chapter out of the GBG especially.
