Will Blog For Food (Literally)

I apologise for the silence here over the past few days. My blogging abilities have been needed elsewhere.

So a quick two things:

One, if you'd like to read a couple of my blog posts for of our week in Kingussie/Cairngorms, you can read them below.

 Sometimes the best surprises are found in the places you least expect. Such was our dining experience at the Silverfjord Hotel in Kingussie. From the street, we could have easily passed by it; the outside of the building is unsuspecting and rather plain - in fact, I would have thought it was some kind of sports bar - but inside, we discovered an extraordinary little gem.



 As it turns out, Kingussie is full of culinary surprises. In a little village boasting a green grocer, a couple of chippies and a Cantonese takeaway, we certainly did not expect to find the amazing restaurants that are tucked neatly along the side streets off the main road. The Auld Alliance, a French ‘restaurant and rooms’ establishment which incorporates Scottish ingredients and influence into its French cuisine, is - dare I say it – one of the best places I have ever eaten. There. I’ve said it, and I don’t take it back.


Second, I'm going to shamelessly ask you to consider clicking just right over there -------> on my sidebar and 'Follow' me. I'm feeling a bit depressed by my lack of official 'followers' even though I know I have a lot of readers. And feel free to leave comments in the comment section below too, because, you know, I apparently need validation or something.

Okay there you have it. More blogging coming soon, after I write about the Highland Wildlife Park and the Cairngorm Mountain Funicular Railway!

  1. What does that "follow me" even do? Maybe you can tell me. I think the feedburner that does email subscriptions is a better deal than "follow me." If you could explain this to me, I would be very grateful.
