A Memory of Bridge of Gairn

I remember, when I was a Van salesman with Sunblest in Aberdeen - my round was Royal Deeside. My morning started at 02.30hrs in Northfield in Aberdeen, loaded I would head for Deeside. I enjoyed my round but more so when I reached Bridge of Gairn, for my first cup of the day. We had long chats over our tea, did Mrs Don and I. Somehow or another, we always got round to speaking about the family that lived in a castle not far away. Mrs Don, would tell me stories of Prince Charles and Princess Anne when they were small children. Word has it they and their mother, would visit her Post Office and General Strore to purchase sweets regularly, on the way home. One of the so called visits to her shop, Mrs Don said to the Queen that the children could have the sweets for nothing, their mother replied "they have their own money, they will pay their way". If only that were the case today. Happy memories of Mrs Don and the Bridge of Gairn PO & General Store.
