The snow has led to the Breakfast Crew having to move base, closer to the Kingdom FM studios while the severe weather continues, and so we have adopted Markinch as our second home!
We are being spoilt, and being given a very friendly welcome by local hoteliers.
Newshound, J.C. was very impressed by the owners of her hotel, who faced with no catering staff because of the bad weather, donned their aprons and cooked her a fabulous dinner last night.
Meanwhile, myself and Diane were staying in another hotel down the road who have been feeding us well, and served me up the largest portion of apple crumble that I’ve ever seen in my life!
Markinch is also home to possibly the most eye-catching snowman in the Kingdom. When we arrived on the first night he was looking slightly menacing with a machine gun under his arm. Yesterday he’d been transformed into a more friendly-looking basketball player, complete with basket ball net and ball - although it would seem someone had taken his head off and put it back on upside down??!!
