Holiday round up – and the winners are

It was a holiday full of great things, some of which are already starting to get lost among the welter of stuff we did. We reckon we needed ‘sea days’ in between things to enable us to process them. 

Best food – chicken wraps at the Syrian cafe in Rothesay joint winner with  scampi and chips from the little van in Beadnell. 

Best wildlife – the Cuddy ducks and little auks seen off the Northumberland coast (I’ve never seen a little auk before). And, naturally, the seals.

Best building – Wemyss station plays Hill House for top spot.

Unexpected pleasures – being able to walk on a bit of your actual Hadrian’s wall.  The poison garden at Alnwick. Finding Capability brown’s birthplace simply because we followed a sign for a café when we need a comfort break.
