A couple of weeks ago I went for a trip with my sister to Formatines, near Tarves and Methlick in Aberdeenshire. 

Formartines is a cafe/restaurant, plus farm shop, deli, and woodland walks. We decided to go for a walk round the woods before stopping for some brunch.

There are multiple walks of different lengths round Keithfield lake and the surrounding woods. On our wanders we came across some fairy houses. Although didn’t spot any of the occupants.

After our short stroll had built up an appetite for brunch. Too many amazing choices, so we decided to go halves. We went for the eggs florentine, poached eggs on muffins with spinach and hollandaise. Always delicious, and complete with runny yolks. 

Also the chicken waffles with corn salsa, the chicken was delicious, only criticism was that it could have done with some sauce, or a thinner salsa. 

To drink my sister went for the raspberry ripple milkshake, so tasty and obviously made with fresh raspberries. 

I had the mint and raspberry tea, amazing!

We were desperate to have a cake for pudding but far too full. Will need a trip there again soon!
