Janet Clark and Simon Green T h e E ar ly Ye ar s o f t h e ah s s To u r s ( J an e t C l ar k ) Fifty years of the ahss? The weekend Tours have been running for at least half of these years. My first one as Organiser was in 1984, and before that they had been operated by Evelyn Macaulay jointly with eafas. My last was to North West Ulster in 1996, so for 13 years they were pretty prominent in my life. In 1984 the tour to ‘Strathmore and the Mearns’ was for the Forth & Borders Group of the Scottish Georgian Society. By 1985 we were the ‘Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland’ but the Tour was still ‘Forth & Borders Group’. After 1990, it became the ahss National Tour. But all this was academic; the process of planning and organising remained much the same. Over the years I’ve forgotten much of the detail, but looking at the old notes brings back very vividly many of the best and worst moments.
