A Malcolm Christmas always involves a trip to Methlick in Aberdeenshire where most of Susies family live. Her Sister Sarah and husband Neil keep a few Hielan’ coos at their farm which are both pretty and spectacularly tasty. Snapped this guy at dawn which was well after eight this morning.

The farm house of Little Ardo where Susie’s family have lived for I think five generations. Thanks to all the Methlickers for a great couple of days hospitality.

Hooray! it has just started to snow in Perth. Last year we had no snow except on the mountains. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

This musical performance was a bit stilted…..I get my coat….Xmas shopping in Perth has been a delight this year as the pedestrianised central area has been awash with street performers and colourful market stalls.

The Arbroath Smokie – a Scottish culinary icon up there with the Forfar Bridie and the Kirriemuir Gingerbread. Or even the Dundee Cake or the Abernethy Biscuit… A dangerous thing for someone to be making in the centre of a town. They might get haddock for assault. I’ll get several coats..
