Cricket has been played at Doo’cot Park for the best part of a century. A K Bell, the founder of the Gannochy Trust and well known philanthropist, constructed the iconic Doo’cot Pavilion back in 1925. This was labour of love for A K whose passion for cricket lasted a lifetime. In 1932, A K had the chance to meet one of the greatest players to grace the game, Australian cricket legend Sir Donald Bradman. Bradman visited A K at Kincarrathie House while convalescing from a serious illness. The two were said to have remained friends ever since.
