From a Special Correspondent "A purposeful, a happy and a cheap holiday "—this is the object and achievement of Laelare Holiday Camp, Linlithgow, Scotland.
This pioneering effort in Catholic holiday camps has been blessed by Mgr. McDonald, 0.S.B., Archbishop af St. Andrews and Edinburgh. Begun in 1943 the scheme has steadily progressed step by step. The indoor and outdoor facilities are second to none. A magnificently simple Gothic church stands right in the centre of the camp. A Polish shrine and Calvary flank the hostel itself.
Tennis, swimming, golf, croquet, putting, etc., are laid on. Linlithgow camp has its own cinema, a delightful ballroom, restaurant, lounges, reading rooms, etc. The Ladies of the Grail play a conspicuous role, so, too, many other parochial Catholic Action adult and youth organisations.
Linlithgow is perhaps the most central point in the whole of Scotland. You can visit Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Trossachs with perfect ease. Even the immediate countryside has a charm all its own.
