Celebrate Arthur Ransome’s birthday at the Hawes Inn in South Queensferry – AGM afterwards in the Meeting Room.
The Firth of Forth narrows at this point … Right in the midst of the narrows lies an islet with some ruins; on the south shore they have built a pier, for the service of the ferry; and at the end of the pier, on the other side of the road and backed against a pretty garden of holly-trees and hawthorns, I could see the building they call the Hawes Inn. *
We look forward to celebrating Ransome’s Birthday with a great lunch!

… presently [David Balfour and Ransome] were set down at a table in the front room of the inn, and both eating and drinking with a good appetite. *
