A walk around Andy Murray's hometown

Oh I am bouncing up and down with delight about Andy Murray winning the US Open! Huge congratulations to our Scottish sporting superstar!

Did you know that I passed through his hometown, Dunblane, earlier this summer when returning from Nottingham?

I went looking for Andy, but he wasn't around.
I guess he was off playing tennis somewhere else. 


  1. I am glad you went to look beclaws I loved seeing all of those incredible buildings. OMD it is so beautiful there. My Mommy dreams of visiting your country some day. Did you get any ice cream???

  2. Well yes, we're all jolly pleased and everything, but don't you wish he was less of a miserable git and a bit more likable?!

  3. What a beautiful village. We'd love to roam around there...

    Speaking of Andy, I guess you may be right...but why didn't you check out the local tennis courts? ;)

  11. What a beautiful town. Too bad Andy wasn't there. Stop by my blog today for a chance to win a toy and help me raise money for Sandra.


  12. I heard somewhere that you are Andy's coach, Bertie. Is there any truth to this or just a rumour someone has started?

    I am glad for Andy's win too.

    Congratulations on your Andy Murray winning! As they say, "If it ain't Scottish it's crap!"

    Your pictures are pretty! It looks like such a lovely town. And so clean and such wonderful old architecture. Sorry you missed seeing Andy. I think he would have loved to have a match with you!


    P.S. I was reading through your blog and the scone story was classic! Hamish is my new hero! I can't wait to see what you do to beat him. ;-> And my human said if your Human Granny ever wants to share her scone recipe, she would be happy to have it. :-> Your Human Granny's scones sound delicious!

  16. Thanks for the tour Bertie. What a lovely town. I'm sure there will be many residents jumping for joy there when Andy next visits.

  21. Howdy Bertie, hope you get to meet him sometime. Lovely place he lives in. Thanks for taking us there. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  24. Hi Bertie, we are so very proud of Andy Murray! It was lovely seeing you in Dunblane and how nice that the town is being associated with such wonderful happy memories!
    You should have popped in to see our pal Marvin! Our human went to visit him a while back but she didn't take us cos we don't like trains!
    You know if Andy had known you were visiting he would have been sure to be at home. Did you see the lovely pic of his two dogs wearing his medals!
    They looked very smart!
