Cricket at Balmoral

What better way to christen Badnabein Steading than with a cricketing weekend? Harry turned 18 this year, so the occasion was marked with a cricket match: Harry’s XI vs Thomas’ XI. The groundsmen at Balmoral kindly let us use their beautiful pitch, and we were blessed with clear blue skies.

Tom’s team started batting, and there was a quick loss of wickets early on. A couple of decent-sized innings from Harry’s XI put them firmly in the lead. It was less about the cricket though, than the cricket tea, friends, family and celebration of a Mediterranean-like summer day.
