The Beatles

On this day in 1963, The Beatles opened a 5-day tour of Scotland to promote their first single Love Me Do.

The first date was cancelled due to bad weather and the tour finally got underway on the 3rd, with a concert at the Two Red Shoes Ballroom, Elgin.


On 1st January 1651 the coronation of Charles II took place at Scone. This was to be the last occasion a monarch was crowned in Scotland. However, Charles was not restored to the throne until after the death of Cromwell in 1660.


Today's recipe: enjoy a traditional start to the New Year with steak pie.
