    Did someone mention bacon rolls?

    If you are ever flying into Wick International Airport, the caff there does cracking bacon butties too and a good mug o' coffee...none of ye 'Starbucks' and McBurgers crap.

    Welcome to the Jungle..

    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
    They are usually made with bacon taken from a place where it's been kept warm since being fried some indeterminate time earlier, levels the workload on the staff.
    However, now that I'm back in the sandpit (close to knoteatingham) I could murder for a decent bacon buttie . . . . . . .

    cheers for the welcome to the SS, looks like a fun (if slightly dangerous) place . .

    The only place in Scotland to make better tasting Bacon Butties is the wee cafe behind the MRI rescue building in Stonehaven (out on the harbour)
    They use "smoked bacon" hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
    (gash buns though) more than made up for with the triple hot chocolate . . .

    Excellent pub grub at the recently re-opened The Bruce (a cosy wee hotel) in Falkand, Fife.

    Their Penne Carbonara is the best I've ever tasted by some distance and I'm a bit o' a conisseur when it comes tae pasta dishes.

    Friendly staff as well which is always nice

    A new cafe just opened in the Fettercairn called 'The Arch' Nice place, great home made soup and the cakes are ace. Has a farm shop there too if you are after a neep on the way home!! Good place to stop and fuel up when having a run over the Cairn 'O' Mount.

    It's just beside the famous arch (funny that!!)

    Cedar cafe

    The South East, especially the A1 are much ignored - I know the West side of the country offers all the views and twisty roads, BUT you don't have the Cedar cafe.
    About 20 miles North of the border on the A1 in a great big lay-bye at Grantshouse.
    Biggest freshly cooked fry up you've ever seen along with clean tables, clean bogs and licked clean plates.
    Plenty of parking, outside tables and Yorkie eaters.

    The Pit Stop is pretty good. I have carried out some 'research' there on a couple of occasions....although as I live but 5mins away, I dont visit very often which is good for my waistline.

    (oh and there is nae 'e' in Huntly)

    There's no way I'd have guessed this was a recycled junk food place. An excellent establishment: freshly-cooked, real food, and a convenient stopping point, too, being half-way to most places...


    Oh, but on other roads, I've always had good nosh from the van at Carter Bar, and further east, the Queen's Head in Berwick-upon-Tweed (NOT the Queen's Head in Tweedmouth!!) has excellent food - between pub-grub and restaurant style - not too formal, but VERY tasty. Used to be a handy place to go while Andy sorted the bike for me, but since the fire he's in Duns, where the local garden centre - although convenient etc etc - isn't quite the same as the QH with its fresh-landed fish...

    There's a wee cafe (Biker's Cove) operating at South Queensferry. It's a bit basic but you get a half decent coffee for a quid (discount for bikers so I was told). You also get to gaze across the Forth from almost beneath the rail bridge.
