... A soaring symphony of arches, towers and windows, fretted against the sky". The sectarian hatred resulting from the Reformation was extreme. The Cathedral was abandoned and the beautiful carved wooden altar was chopped up for firewood. The coastal towns, Buckie to Portknockie are very picturesque. We have a seafood meal at the fishing village of Whitehills and spend our last night ...
... couple who lived many years in New Zealand....they saw this place was for sale so headed 'HOME'
Tonight we have decided to eat in the rather old and beautiful dinning room.
We have visited the Huntly Castle, with enough building intact that you get a fairly good idea of how it was in the 1600C
So plenty of car scenery...today

Angus led us through the entire process from growing ...
... None of the pictures I've ever seen do justice to what is really there. Huge hills covered in Heather and it was all in flower, as were the Scotch Thistles.

Friendly enough, clean, and simple. No frills (but more cable channels than I expected). Showed up at the last minute around 8:30 and was able to get a room (Tuesday night). Restaurant closes by 9pm, and only food around is the Co-operative Food next door, but only until 10pm. Breakfast was hardy and delicious. No complaints.
