Another Scottish Doctor...
Thought you might like to see this. Of particular interest to me as the town of Kilwinning just happens to be my birthplace. A wee place - most folk pass through going somewhere else. There's a rather lovely old ruined abbey to see, and just outside the town is Eglinton Castle - famous for the Eglinton Tournament (1839). Blue Peter did a thing about that. As well as my own good self, the poet Robert W. Service lived there for a time - the "Bard of the Yukon" who wrote The Shooting of Dan McGrew (Service's father was born in Kilwinning).
More than happy to give the Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald a nod. (To access the article, there is one of those annoying questionnaires. Just click "No").
