Thread Name: Lyr Add: Sleepytoon / Sleepy Toon (Norman Kennedy)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: (Hiring Fair) Sleepytoon
Hi, I visited Sleepytoon a couple of years ago - the bothy is stil there although it is looking a bit worse for wear now! As the crow flies its pretty near to Alford and Rhynie but its closest to Insch and in the shadow of the hill of Dunideer. I should say that the farm sign at the end of the road is actually Sleepytown as opposed to toon! Och well, cant have it all! Have been meaning to go up again (I live about 15mins away) but studying in Glasgow doesnt give me many chances to get up north anymore!! IF anyone wants any other info or even if you want me to email you some pictures let me know, I'd be more than happy to.
PS I was at Earlsfield the farm of the Scranky Black Farmer last weekend and sang the song in the byre. What a great way to spend an afternoon!!
