Jessie Gallan’s live has been long and rich and nutritionally sound.
The oldest woman in Scotland, who has just celebrated her 109th birthday on 2 January, puts her good health down to a staple breakfast of porridge and “plenty of exercise”.
But that isn’t the only thing that’s kept her going,
“My secret to a long life has been staying away from men,” she told the Daily Mail. “They're just more trouble than they're worth.”
Gallan was born in a farm cottage that had just two rooms in Aberdeenshire in 1906.
She left home aged just 13 and became a milkmaid.
She successfully managed never to get married.Reuse content
