Scotland is well known for it's hard man. Men who fight (usually fueled by that great God Booze), cause trouble, and generally give a place a bad name.
These hard guys cause no hassle and are so chilled out and calm, one would think they were cast in solid bronze.
They are. These are the hard men of Kilmarnock high street, the guardians of the pavement the lords of the road.
These hard men are not lazy oafs intent on trouble. No, they are thinkers, poets, and swimmers. Good solid men of character and strength.
They give tourists something to look up at, they create smiles on the faces of those seeing such swimmers erupt from a cobblestone street forrst time, and they give locals something to sit on, on a sunny afternoon when shopping bags drag at shoulders and legs ache for 'just a wee rest'.
Say hello to the hard men of Kilmarnock high street and have a nice weekend.
