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!

The venue, by popular demand, is once again the Tryst in Pitlochry. It is five minutes walk from the station, with trains from both the north and the south arriving in good time at 10.19 (trains cross here, it is single track).
Robert White, member of TARS Scotland, will talk about nature in Arthur Ransome’s twelve children’s books. In the afternoon there will be a ‘bring-and-tell’ session when you can read a passage on nature from your own favourite books be they fiction, plays or poetry.
