Eleven Go Touring
Well, it had to happen. In the year of the Scottish Independence Referendum, the Broons have decided to leave the comfort of Glebe Street in Dundee and visit their Capital City (no, not freakin’ London, ya Sassenach toadies!).
Follow their adventures in The Broons!, the latest tongue-firmly-in-cheek piece from Dunfermline-born Andrew Velzian.
Indulge in a wee Friday smile, courtesy of Saltcoats’ own Angus Shoor Caan, who goes off on a fancy dress riff to play doctors and nurses in Dressed to suit. (Warning: a spliff or two may be involved.)
Enjoy the weekend!

Next up, Saltcoats’ own Angus Shoor Caan goes on a riff with a spliff.
