Wee afternoon run around NE Scotland
on: May 27, 2013, 09:55:55 AM
Hi, just thought I would post a report for the wee run I had last Friday.

Fifi called and said that she would be getting a half day....so a plan was hatched.

We left Peterhead and went to a favourite café of your called the 'Last Bus Stop'. It's near New Pitsligo and is open Friday-Sunday each week. Food is very tasty and vegetarian for those who like that sort of thing....I like their food especially the Apple Pie and Ice Cream.:)

Here's the link:

We then took the Fraserburgh/Banff road and went to Whitehills to get some '3way fish'. Very tasty:). We decided to go back via the coast road from Macduff. This is going round by Gardenstone and Pennan. I had forgot how nice this road was, well worth a diversion if you need to up round Fraserburgh/Banff. It was hot so I diverted in to Pennan for a soft drink. Took this opportunity to take a few photos of Pennan.




and finally the actual phone box in Pennan (re the movie Local Hero....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_Hero)


So it was not a long run, but a very nice one on a lovely day. If anyone is planning to come round the NE Scotland area drop me a line and I'll try to take you round a few places.
Cheers
Slomo

Great pics, thanks slomo. We plan to be around the places in scotland at around the last week of July. I haven't any exact plans but this area looks beautiful for touring  :062:
