UK 2015: Grantown-on-Spey

After our long day in the car, I needed to get a quick walk around town to check out the snow.

As I was taking photos of the church, the pastor’s wife waved me over and invited me for post-church tea. Turns out they were Americans that had been there for years!

After a lovely conversation I had to return back to the B&B to get ready for dinner at The Craig Bar, just a few blocks away.

not a good night for outdoor dining; tasty meat pie

Craig Bar is known for meat pies, and they did not disappoint! Leandra ordered the blue cheese and steak, while I couldn’t pass up the ‘Chicken of Aragon.’ Both were very tasty, and very filling. I paired mine with an amber beer from the nearby Cairngorm Brewery, a good match with a little spice. Leandra paired her beef with the ‘house red’ from Jackrabbit – which was inexpensive and fine.

After dinner we each ordered a whisky. I ordered the Tormore 12, which had a light maple syrup and nutty scent and was quite easy to drink! Leandra went for the Glenfarclas 10, which was fairly mild and semisweet.
