Event
Fife Herald 14 October 1858 Coaltown of Balgonie - The Harvest-Home - Last week, in keeping with good old Scottish custom, Mr Henry Kilgour, farmer here, celebrated the ingathering of his corn crops by a "maiden feast". The reaming ale circled freely, and the many good things of this life were abundantly distributed. Dancing commenced under his "roof-tree" and was harmoniously carried out. The music was supplied by Mr. Kilgour, whose abilities as a violin player are not generally known. Such a "rantin' kirn" had not often been conducted hereabouts. Nothing is more creative of happy feelings than seeing the crops safely secured; and it is a fitting time for the grateful to rejoice.
