Holiday Memories

A Memory of Auchencrow

I have very happy memories of a family holiday spent in the village of Auchencrow in 1956 or 1957. The village was tiny then, consisting of one main street with an Inn and a general shop. At least that's how I remember it. My mother and father had rented a cottage at the other end of the village from the Inn. It had a large rockery garden at the back with a profusion of flowers. There was no garden at the front as it was right on to the road. The weather seemed to be beautiful every day, funny how one only remembers the good times! It was such a peaceful, idyllic location. I've never been back since then but I expect things will have moved on and it will be quite built up now. Happy days indeed.
