Aswad, Mayfest and Glasgow Urchins
Back from my travels with the usual mixed bag of nonsense to torment you with in the forthcoming days.
If you every get the chance to visit Tomintoul you should do so.
It is a lovely village in the Cairngorm National Park, at least 15 miles away from anywhere else and reached via quite magnificent scenery.The first place in the UK to get cut off by snow every year and when you see the roads up the mountains you can see why.
I also returned with a 10 year old malt from the local distillery.
No charity shops though but don't worry we found plenty elsewhere.
First off the pleasant seaside town of Nairn where the Greatest Hits of British reggae lite band Aswad was purchased.
Not totally convinced that it is a keeper.
My pal Raymie Boff and I saw them once at Govan Town Hall as part of the much missed Mayfest festival.
They opened the doors towards the end and a squad of Glasgow urchins piled in and strutted their stuff down the front!
The highlight of the evening.
