I’ll be popping along to Killermont Primary School‘s Spring Fayre on Saturday 21 May. For a bit of fun, I’m hosting a stall. If you’re going, come and say hello.
It’s a chance to return to my old stomping ground of Bearsden, where I spent my teenage years and a couple more either side.
When you’re used to hearing the name of a place you tend to stop thinking about the meaning of the name. I’ve heard ‘Killermont’ many a time, but I’ve never thought about why it’s called that. Until now. Was it a dangerous hill? If so, why? I will try to find out and report back!
Oh, and if you’re thinking, Look at that marble playground they have a Killermont, let me assure you that it’s actually West of Scotland rain that’s causing the sheen.
