I enjoyed the article, A Garden of
Remembrance in the August issue of Scottish
Field so much.
It brought back memories of the lovely time my late parents spent in respite care at Alastrean House, named after Lady MacRobert's sons.
Alastrean only had permanent care for RAF men and women and their dependents, but took Army and Navy men and women for respite.
My Dad said that he would be 'under the eagle with the brylcreem boys'.
The garden was so beautiful there too and their lovely room looked out onto it.
Douneside House used to have an open day in July and we went to admire the gardens. Now it's a lovely hotel, still catering for lots of charities. My brother and his wife stayed there through the Parkinson's society and had a wonderful time.
