Booker Gliding Club explores Deeside

The cloud refused to break yesterday, so we set off in various directions to sample the delights of Deeside. The lunch offerings at the Black Faced Sheep are second to none, the goats cheese and tomato bruschetta can be particularly recommended.

There were several separate expeditions to Loch Muick for the 8 mile walk around the shore, which gave us an appetite for tea and cake back at Birkellun, where we are now all comfortably installed.

Others went to the whisky castle at Tomintoul, and to visit Corgarf castle (actually a fortified house).

In the evening a brave band set off to the Co-op to buy dinner for 12, which was excellent, and the evening was rounded off with a taste of Denis's whisky.

Today we hope for blue sky and a chance for the newcomers to practise circuits and get a feel for the local scenery.
