This weekend we decided to do a shorter walk as we’ve had so many other things going on.
We went a wander around the forest that is part of Drumtochty Castle Estate which isn’t far from Auchenblae in South Aberdeenshire. It was a pleasant and easy walk of around an hour today and the trees sheltered us from the drizzly rain. I had woken up feeling grumpy and tense this morning but a wee while in the fresh air soon helped me into a more merry mood.
We stopped at the cafe and shop in Auchenblae on our way back. It was really very nice, we both enjoyed a Fentimans drink with a wee cake. I love Fentimans Rose Lemonade – a proper treat. See http://www.fentimans.com/ for more information. I had a triple chocolate muffin and the Boyo had a snickers cupcake. Lovely light sponges, very tasty. The shop had a range of home cooked meals to re-heat at home and fresh bread. I got a little steak pie and Boyo a slice of goats cheese quiche to have with herby roast potatoes for tea tomorrow. I would definitely say stop in if are passing through Auchenblae at any point.
We got home to tasty smells – I’d put all the ingredients in the slow cooker before we left so a gym beef strogonaf was waiting for us when we got home.
A lovely relaxed Sunday!
