Meeting the stone man in Markinch

After this afternoon’s debate I headed across to Glenrothes in the minibus where we were warmly welcomed by Tricia Marwick MSP, Cllr John Beare and the rest of the campaign team and were promptly sent out to canvass in Coaltown of Balgonie. This was the first place I campaigned in with Tricia during the Holyrood campaign last year so it was good to be back. A group of us were driven there this time by the very same man who had driven from Glasgow to London and back again to return the Stone of Destiny to the people of Scotland. After a couple of hours canvassing we returned to the rooms in Markinch where I spent some time stuffing envelopes with Ian Hamilton and had the chance to chat with him about his book and about one of the most remarkable feats in Scottish history.
