Day Five, 20 April 2013

 We left the big cities of Scotland behind today to spend the rest of the tour in the Highlands and the islands.  The east coast road passed through fishing villages such as Pittenweem as well as the famous links golf course in St. Andrews.  Our destinations, Verdant Works Jute Mill Museum and the Discovery Museum in Dundee, and our home for the next 2 nights, Inverurie in Aberdeenshire.

At Gadies Restaurant in Oyne, each tour we enjoy a Scootish feast. Here is a tian of haggis neeps, tatties, whisky jus. Food in Scotland is often locally sourced, fresh, and delicous!
