THE ARRAN BANNER 20 YEARS AGO

THE ARRAN BANNER 20 YEARS AGO

Saturday 19 April

Queen to visit

The Queen is to visit Arran on Saturday August 9. She will land at Brodick from the Royal yacht on what will be the last, possibly even the final, voyage of the Britannia. She will then go to Lochranza and rejoin the yacht. The Queen last visited Arran 50 years ago, shortly after her engagement to the Duke of Edinburgh. Now 50 years later and after 44 years on the throne The Queen is to return to the island where she will open the new distillery visitor centre and attend the Brodick Highland Games where she will officially open the new Ormidale sports field. The Duke will not be joining her on the visit which should be an enjoyable trip down memory lane for her as she will meet up with Lady Jean Fforde again.
