An incredibly sweet video of a grandfather greeting his granddaughter has gone viral. Student Jennifer Barclay took to Twitter to share the compilation of her 87-year-old grandad’s reaction every time she stops by his house.
Even if it has only been a few days since they’ve seen each other, Jennifer’s grandfather, Robert, is always delighted to see her – and it’s heartwarming to watch.
My wee Grandad, 87 years young and he’s my no.1 guy💕 I love him with all my heart. And I love recording his reactions when I come to visit. I hope everyone can appreciate the video I’ve made as much as I do👴🏻💕xoxo pic.twitter.com/4XK4TEBctQ

The last may have been the sweetest. I watched this with my 15-year-old daughter whose grandfathers died before and soon after her birth, and we were both so touched. What a lucky girl you are. Thank you for sharing.

Jennifer describes her grandfather, Robert, who lives in the coastal town of Methil in Scotland, as her “number one guy” and “the greatest man ever” and judging by the way he greets his guests, she may just be right.
But it wasn’t just his hosting skills that Twitter users were praising, as many couldn’t help but notice the 87-year-old was also a pretty natty dresser and had a seemingly never-ending collection of sharp jumpers.
His sweater collection though 😍😍
