Doing stuff on a Sunday!!!

Having spent Saturday morning at the office and then the afternoon watching Scotland stumble past Georgia 2-1 at Hampden, Sunday was once again upon us, which meant I was about to be dragged up some hill or a walk through some forrest.

My lovely wife Jennifer has started to make sure i don't just laze about on a Sunday which i love doing to recharge the batteries after a hard week. This week some 2 hour walk near Callander was mentioned but after a slightly longer lie in on Sunday morning, we decided to explore the lovely village of Culross in Fife, a mere 20 minute drive from Stirling.

Culross lies east of the Kincardine Bridge in the shadow of Longannet Power Station on the banks of the River Forth, but please dont let this cloud your judgement on what this village is like.

It's cobbled street's rise up to the Abbey and leave behind a small medieval style village centre with Palace, Mercat cross and Hobbit sized cottages, which seem a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the Longannet Power Station, the nearby main road to Dunfermline and the Grangemouth oil refinery which sits across the Forth.

The village was right in the middle of it all, but it was still secluded enough to be an excellent place for a relaxing stroll on Sunday and more importantly for some super Sunday lunch.

At lunchtime not many people seemed to be walking the streets and thats because they were all having lunch in the Red Lion Inn, a charming traditional village pub with mural paintings on the ceiling. If you visit Culross make sure you leave enough time to visit the Red Lion Inn and more importantly have enough space in your stomach to sample some of its extensive menu.

So after some grub (Pork Steak with blue cheese and smoked bacon sauce) it was time to head back to the car and then back to Stirling for a few hours rest before im out again (i know twice on a Sunday), to a tribute concert to The Jam in the Albert Halls, Stirling - by tribute band The Jamm.

So this Sunday , im certainly not "Going Underground" and seeking a rest from work, im actually doing stuff - heaven forbid. Oh and did i tell you i also changed a couple of basin sink taps as well. Jeesh I'll need a rest at work this week just to recover from the weekend.
