    Orlandies ice cream is ok, keep going till cullen on the moray coast and thats where you'll find the 2nd best ice cream of all time imo. 3rd best ice cream is peters at cairnbulg and 1st by a country mile is Foosies at the roundabout in Thornhill, Dumfriesshire - awesome, been having some for 28 years every summer!

    No bad grub too.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty and preserved piece, but to slide across the line broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, leaking oil, shouting GERONIMO!!!

    Station Buffet Bar, Elie

    I looked into the Station Buffet Bar in Elie, Fife (lovely wee coastal village with a cracking sandy beach) and had a coffee in the pub which is on the main street. Turns out that it was voted the Sunday Mail Pub Of The Year 2008. The barman and several regulars were ultra friendly, which make a pleasant change when you step into a strange boozer. It was just after 11 a.m. when I went in but it started to fill up. It turns out that the barman was Edith Bowman's (Radio One DJ) faither. There were two or three music memorabilia items on the walls among lots of railway, sporting and seafairing stuff. Edith Bowman and her brother own the pub but there's nothing "showbizzie" about it.

    A really nice pub with a very heathy selection of whiskies.

    Oh, I had the car in case yer wondering why I was drinking coffee.

    Was in there yesterday! good grub and for a touristy place prices were brill.

    Green welly now has a pizza stop, sit down or take out. Not cheap but very good.

    Applecross Inn is always good and depending on the ride over a welcome place to go drip dry or warm up!

    There was a greasy spoon on the campsite at Thurso that used to do a massive breakfast, Billys bumper breakfast (he gave us our money back once for eating 2 each) I didn't eat till next morning, them wer the days. When men wer men and even the women wer men!

    We had some cracking munchies in The Alford Bistro, funnily enough, in Alford.

    Superb home bake trolley.

    The Croft Inn just about a mile from Glenlivet on the B9008 Dufftown road. Cracking wee place and really good food. Best pub grub I've tasted in a long time. Over 60 different malts and a few cask ales.

    Langholm on the A7

    Hello everyone,
    Whitshiels Cafe and Caravan Park, Langholm, Dumfriesshire (on the A7)
    Small cafe run by Mr and Mrs Vickers. This is an excellent little cafe, it's spotlessly clean and the food is just excellent, really is a smashing little place. Plenty of parking, caravan site is small but room for a few tents too.
    Regards, Richard.

    Kincardine O'neil

    Post office in Kincardine O'Neil does stunning bacon butties.
    made on the premisies, while you wait.

    (will also do black pudding n egg rolls)

    Good excuse to slow down going through Kincardine O'Neil as it's known for being a place used to tax skiers in the winter (the boys in blue have been known to nail anyone doing 33+ through town in the winter, just as the skiers are on a mission to get to the slopes at the crack of noon)

    Bacon rolls made on the premises while you wait? How are bacon rolls usually put together?

    We'll need to send AndyT to recce this place for a taste test. A good bacon roll is a Tosser prerequisite on a morning run.

    BTW Welcome to the SS
