Happy mem­o­ries

Scottish Field - - LETTERS -

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.
