Flavours of Scotland
April 19th – 24th, 2016


April 23rd

After breakfast we were off again and our first stop was to Dean’s Shortbread…awesome, love their shortbread and I learned that if you heat the cookies up just a tiny bit in the microwave they taste even better … my absolute favourite is the shortbread with tiny bits of lemon in it…when I go back I am going to bring about 10 cans of these cookies home with me. Lunch was at the Glen Lui Hotel in Ballater with such a great soup to warm us all, after all we did see frost on the fields on the way through! Then on to taste cheese at Cambus O’May Cheese Company. Had a great tour through here with James and lots of samples. The photos of the landscape on the way to Scone show lots of black patches … later on they bloom as they are heather. Finally arrived at Scone Palace, and again, no photos inside but we could take them in the café which was the old kitchen...afterwards I wandered around the gardens and took quite a long walk before meeting up with the cattle. From here it was on to our next hotel, Atholl Arms Hotel, where it just so happened that they are also owners of the Moulin Brewery … we tried four different kinds and enjoyed another excellent meal. The food in Scotland is just so good…
