Sunday was such an amazing day - with sunsets to match. Here aver some photos of Ben and the sky

Our new Hereford bull

Buddy was a premature calf - now 2 months on he is pictured with Andria

Some Stromness views from Copeland's Dock

Sheila took Bruce & Ben a walk on Sunday and took these photos

Our Weekend in Caithness

Robbie booked a weekend for us at Ackergill Tower. I couldn't believe it!!!
I rather think Sheila had a bit to do with the "Laterooms" computer work.
Ackergill and the staff are amazing. I will never forget it - and nothing will ever compare to that weekend

February has been a wonderful month - so far.

I set off a day early- the forecast was terrible and Rosie and I had booked our spar break at the North Berwick Hydro to run from February 6th. Crossing at 4.45pm on the Sunday night, I just drove ...until I got to Perth at about 11pm.
Slept so well.
After a long lie went out to see Sarah Mellersh at "Let's cook Scotland"
I was looking for some inspiration - new ideas for 'farmhouse' breakfasts and 'breakfasts to go'
Glad to say I emerged with some new ideas from a lovely lovely young lady.
2 days relaxing at North Berwick was just great - lots of laughs and gentle exercise and the odd gin
Tasted beef cheeks for the first time, and they have been subsequently ordered from Fletts and tried here at Burnside.
Very economical- just about £5 for a kilo
They seemed to enjoy them - there are plenty of recipes on the Internet!
