Health and fitness, Thoughts

A tiring day with some mince and skirlie!

So today we were going to climb our first munro, Lochnagar. Unfortunately illness and very low cloud cover put paid to that so instead we opted for a couple of hours walking around Loch Muick instead.

The walk wasn’t too bad, though I think we seemed to go the opposite direction to everyone else considering how many times we had to stop to let oncoming walkers past. I just wish the cloud had lifted a bit more so we had a better view of the hills looming over the area as we were driving in and walking round. It would have been especially good to get a glimpse of Lochnagar even if we weren’t able to get up it today. The hill’s not going anywhere though so we’ll try and get it again in a couple of weeks.

Shame we couldn't see the hills through the cloud!

It brightened up towards the end

Once we got home our thoughts turned to tea. Mince and tatties was suggested so how could I resist taking the opportunity to get a picture of mince and skirlie for the blog? It’s only taken me a month! I’ve now updated the recipe for this with the image below, so take a look and give it a go it you haven’t already.
Mince and skirlie!

I hope you all had a great weekend.
