Needing  break from DIY and gardening, we decided on a day our walking; preferably somewhere we had not been before.  Packed up bits and pieces for the walk, including hats and gloves (even though it's June, we ARE in Scotland) and planned to collect lunch from the shop in Aboyne.  Hah fat chance; crisps, Girdle scones and Tandoori Turkey bits were all that was on offer; good job we had brought coffee, apples, cake and Twix from the house. Weather cool and cloudy, but warm enough and dry; no need for hats and gloves. A lovely walk; easy going and not busy; just enough people about that we didn't feel lonely.
