Childhood Memories ©

John Bearcat-Redmond
Fife, Scotland

Off from the bus garage the Mystery tour it went
In buses two and pleasure bent
to view the Trossachs scenes so grand
The finest sights in old Scotland
I was with my mother on this tour
by winding road and heather moor
With Stirling reached we halted there
to stretch our legs and get fresh air
At Thornhill we all felt dry
we got refreshed then in full cry
to Aberfoyle where mad with joy
As followers welcomed 'Brave Rob Roy'
We climbed the hill by winding way
and turning road past Loch Achray
Until we reached the Trossachs heart,
Loch Katherine, nature's work of art
The scenes were lovely to behold
as natures treasures did unfold
Lovely Loch Venacher we passed
and then we reached Callendar at last
And there we had a lovely tea,
Unusually nice my mother was to me
Though dull clouds gathered was quite plain
we didn't worry about the rain
It was into the bus and homeward bound,
a great day I remember by all was found
