scottish and proud

Lego Andy Murray with a beard. What are they smoking up in Scotland?

The British media are swarming over the Scot’s hometown of Dunblane.

WITH ANDY MURRAY in his second Wimbledon Final in two years and playing superbly, media outlets have descended on his hometown for delightful ‘colour pieces’.

A horde of journalists and photographers are currently swarming all over Dunblane in Scotland. Any shop, library, butchers or public house displaying Murray paraphernalia has been visited by happy snappers — no vague Murray connection or story about how he used to play football on your green is unwelcome.

Here’s a selection of the passionate/crazy people that live in Andy Murray’s town:

A mix of Sean Connery, Steve Irwin and maybe, just maybe, Andy Murray.

These butchers were kitted out in their whiter than white headbands.

This is the tennis-inspired fare inside.
