Scots have  love affair  with Barbados

FIFTY IS A magic number for a Scottish couple in a love affair with Barbados.

Andrew and Susan Docherty flew into Barbados on Saturday night for what is their 50th visit, and tagging along with them is her sister Catherine McAlonan who celebrates her 50th birthday on Friday. McAlonan is on her 23rd trip.

Barbados became a long-term dream for the couple, having heard and read so much about it. That dream became a reality in 1991, and they have not been able to stay away. They are well travelled and have been to several other islands, but Barbados is the place of choice.

So potent is the attraction, that they are sometimes here up to four times a year and neither of them is even near retirement.
