Best Fish N Chips In Stonehaven

HIS BEST COMFORT FOOD... Fish and Chips in Stonehaven, highly recommended by my son.  Half an hour drive away and we arrived here one Sunday to try their Fish 'n' Chips, which is my BIL's favourite at all times. 

While the guys queued up for the food, I could not resist going next door to Aunty Betty for her homemade ice cream.  Despite the long queue, I persevered until it was my turn some 15 minutes later....
Definitely long... but I did not give up... 
Put my pair of spectacles to "reserve" the table while I went to Q..... 
We ordered two Large.... filled with fresh potato fries.... 
And two double scoops of Rum and Raisin, Coffee, Pistachio and Vanilla...
And that was our lunch right beside the beach..... 
It might not be a good idea... for it was frightfully cold!
I notice  many stayed inside their car to enjoy their food and ice cream... 
Anyway, when it comes to food, that is not a problem, inside or outside!

Best Place To Visit Falls Of Feugh, Banchory

FALLS OF FEUGH... This is my fourth time to this place and still wanting to go.  The scenery is breathtaking and the food is great!   The place is just less than an hour drive from Aberdeen to Banchory and we came here after our visit to the Gideon Highlanders museum.
And so here we are at the grounds.... 
The place where we had our tea.... 
A cottage just opposite the cafe... 
Inside the cafe.... very nice cosy feeling... 
If it is sunny, customers would love to sit here.... 
Unfortunately, the weather is still too cold.. 
Otherwise, it would be wonderful to have our food outside on the balcony 
while listening to the splashes of the falls.... 
Summer will be great for weddings or events to be held here.... 
I can just imagine for now...
Quickly took a few photos outside and scurried in for the warmth and our tea time knick knacks...
Their homemade warm buns....
And their super rich butter...
I could finish these in one bun itself.... LOL...
Aaron ordered this for his lunch....
And the big man had this... really very English-y... 
No fishy smell... all was nicely done and I tried a bit...
Yummmss... I will order this the next time if I go there again!
As for desserts, their homemade moist strawberry butter cake!
The lady brought the whole cake over for me to take photo!
We tried a slice... it melted in our mouths...
Thought of ordering another piece!
If not for this desserts... just so mouth-watering!
After the scrumptious food, we walked to the Bridge of Feugh, 
just a small walk from Banchory teahouse.... 
This footbridge is popular with visitors who watch salmon climb the natural leap 
as they make their way up the Falls during the months of February to March
and from September to November....
No, we did not manage to see any salmon leaps...
Maybe we did not wait long enough...
Another time, perhaps....

A Visit To The Gordon Highlanders Museum, Aberdeen

One of His highlights *not mine* is the Gordon Highlanders Museum here in Aberdeen.  My BIL is all for history, especially those war memorials.... visiting museums is the main itinerary for his trip to UK.  Before he came, he already did a lot of research on where to go and places to visit. 

And so here we are on one fine weekend...

The Gordon Highlanders Museum... it is based in Aberdeen and it celebrates the story of the Gordon Highlanders which were active from 1794 to 1994 and it is a 5 star Scottish Tourist Board attraction, according to Wikipedia.
Walking up the entrance to the museum.... 
At the entrance, the two guys bought their tickets to go in....
While the two ladies made their way to the cosy cafe..... 
We ordered a light breakfast..... 
Lentils soup and tuna sandwich...  around 6 pounds... 
I was not a Big Fan of soup before... 
But now, I definitely AM!
As long as it is not milky creamy based, I am fine with any type of soup... 
While waiting for the guys, we walked around the gift shop.... 
One hour later, they exit from their tour.... 
My BIL gave full praises for the guided tour... 
Definitely worth the visit, he said... 
hmmm.... 
And before we left, a Salute to the heroes....
