Carronade 2015

Last Thursday morning, Dave, Sue, Di and myself set off for South Queensferry. We duly arrived at the Hawes Inn late afternoon. Friday morning after a hearty breakfast we set off to visit Stirling Castle and the site of the  Battle of Bannockburn.
The visitor centre at the site is a rather splendid affair with a rather good 3D presentation together with a description of the battle with a visual map presentation, you can even book to refight the battle.

Robert The Bruce

Saturday we left the girls to their own devices and made an early start for Carronade.
This was my first visit and I was not to be disappointed, light, fairly spacious, great games and a rather good trade presence. Here is a selection of some of the games, which were to numerous to take photo's of all of them, just some that caught my eye or are periods that interest me.
