Northern Pilgrimage

We're on holiday in Avimore at the moment. On the way up we stopped off at a place that I know has been of great importance to some of us in our individual spiritual journeys.

I remember John once famously predicting that, in years to come, we will struggle to remember if we attended university at Edinburgh or St Andrews. These days I find it easier to think that we studied at the University of Kinross Services.

Did it always have a BurgerKing?

Not sure if the burger king has always been there, it may well have had its own food outlet in the days when moto was granada.

I've been thinking about it, and am sure that there wasn't a burgerking there before. Like every other spiritual site, it seems that Kinross services has been ravaged by global capitalism.

Yeah - prior to the arrival of burger king the kinross services food concession was run by anarcho-syndaclist buddhist monks :-)
