His home is with Class 1 at Greenhill Primary School in Wakefield but, whenever possible, he accompanies his classmates and teachers on their travels, and captures his adventures on camera to share them with the class when he returns.
This time he had stowed away with Mrs Hardy (aka my sister Rose, with husband Dave!) on her Easter visit to Balliemeanoch Farmhouse and Steading. It was his first trip to this part of Scotland, so he was keen to see all the sights – and of course we were only too happy to show them off!
It was a pretty packed itinerary, but here are some of Barnaby’s highlights:
Tarbert, a pretty fishing port on Loch Fyne
Looking down the Kyles of Bute, from the viewpoint above Tighnabruaich
Watching the shinty at Strachur’s new playing field (Strachur won 2-1 – go Strachur!)
Dinner at our favourite local restaurant, Inver Cottage, next to old Castle Lachlan on Loch Fyne. Just re-opened for the season!
I’m pretty sure Barnaby had a great time – the rest of us certainly did. We hope he will spread the good word, and come back soon!
