Beth Blogs: Welcome to my first ever blog!

Beth Blogs: Welcome to my first ever blog!


Hello Warriors of the World!

My name is Beth and Ceri, a.k.a. The Ginger Warrior, is my mum's cousin. I was 14 on the 6th August and I have Down syndrome. 

Today for my first blog I am going to tell you about my holiday at Duchally. It's a country estate in Scotland near Gleneagles. I went with my family  for my birthday.

This is me and my brother Lewis outside the hotel:


This is us with Granny Joyce and Grandad Dougie:


When we are arrived we checked in then we went to the swimming pool.  It was great fun.

The next day we went for afternoon tea at Gleneagles. My favourite part was all the cakes. I really love chocolate!


It was beautiful there with all the flowers but I got a stone stuck in my shoe and had to stop to get it out:


I had a really, really good day with my family and a great birthday and I loved my dress!


But don't go away yet! Here is a little video of our special day.  I hope you have fun watching my first ever vlog because I really enjoyed making it!

Beth Blogs, over and out.

  1. Loved it Beth! Looking gorgeous in your birthday dress and those revolving doors looked a lot of fun! Happy 14th birthday xx

  2. Hi Beth – great first blog and vlog! I loooooove your dress too! :)

    I grew up in Auchterarder, just outside Gleneagles, and I used to go cycling past Duchally lots. Beautiful place! I’m not sure I’ve ever had the Gleneagles afternoon tea though – will have to persuade my parents to treat me sometime! :)
