I WAS fascinated by your report on the different people who expressed thoughts about annual summer holidays.
It was an eye-opener to learn that Ewan McPherson would be spending a week - not on the Costa del Sol - but in Musselburgh, East Lothian.
It reminded me that in times past Scots really did enjoy holidaying on their doorstep.
That could be in Musel burghor Portobello in Edinburgh, or at west coast resorts like Largs or Ayr.
Those holidays in the 1950s and early 1960s usually lasted only a week. They were usually done on the cheap, but they were glorious family holidays. Even the weather was better.
Now it appears we may just be holidaying at home because of fuel surcharges on flights abroad are cutting big holes in our holiday budgets.
