This enterprising lad, commisioned a spoon as a memento of his Scottish holiday.
He then went on to make a gift of this little spoon, he made with his Swiss army knife.
Thank you, it's a treasure and we enjoyed having you and your family to camp.

When you're tired of cooking beans and bangers on your camp fire,visit Arbroath http://www.oldboatyard.co.uk/ or Marco's famous fish and chip shop (Daily Record).




Some people cook their potatoes on a campfire instead of using them as ears!

This little girl came in to camp carrying a teddy bear and left with a boat.
