Converted Farmhouse, Carrshield
11th August 2010: As we came to the end of our walk we stopped and passed the time of day with an elderly man who was tending his garden which he obviously took great pride in. He asked where we had walked from and to and seemed impressed. During our conversation his house phone began to ring and he said he must answer and added “if you’re back this way call in for a coffee.” He waved and went into the house.
4th August 2011: I was playing a golf match at Allendale Golf Club and one of the pair we were playing against said he lived in Carrshield. I have a long association with Carrshield having taken school groups there for field work at the old school, which became a field study centre. I also mentioned our walk the previous year and talking to an elderly man in his garden, describing its location. “That must have been me” John Hill replied “but I can’t remember our conversation!”
Obviously we made a big impression.
