Black Sheep Brewery and Haggis Trail

Firstly, Janet tells us of our trip to a brewery … We couldn’t have asked for a better day for a trip out – warm and sunny, perfect for the roof down and sunglasses on. (Isadora Duncan style, though no scarves involved, thankfully, so perhaps a hint of Audrey Hepburn?)
There was fabulous scenery to admire across the Dales and a few cyclists to avoid on the narrow single-track lanes, not to mention some interesting reversing and passing places. Every man and his cycle were out enjoying the day along with us! What an interesting stop for coffee/butty at The Buffer – a hidden gem – but I wouldn’t like to be the cleaner there, though!
We managed to get safely to our destination of The Black Sheep Brewery bob on time and a delicious meal and a tasty beer awaited. Many of the group went for a brewery tour whilst a few opted to sit out in the sunshine with a drink and soak up the smell of hops from a distance!
Everyone enjoyed the well-organised outing by Kathryn and Wayne – even “the key” incident didn’t spoil the day – but no names, no pack drill, ”Don’t tell him Pike!” Here’s to the next trip – CHEERS!!
And, secondly, Mick, Barbara and Geof set out on the 2nd Haggis Trail, (really!) an around about 1100 mile trip – from here, but one couple came from Sweden and another from France – organised by Ian Glass of Country Lane Tours, taking in the Olympic dining room, from the sister ship of the Titanic, at the White Swan in Alnwick; Edinburgh; an almighty gale in St Andrews; a journey down the Great Glen and, for variety, the Jacobite steam hauled train on the Mallaig line. Closing the Tour, we even managed to attend an MG gathering at Dunblane.
