Visit… ‘The Royal Lochna­gar Dis­tillery (01339 742700, malts. com), next door to Bal­moral, for a bril­liant day out. It’s a sin­gle malt Scotch whisky dis­tillery on the Abergeldie Es­tate, close to the Lochna­gar moun­tain. Smaller than most, the dis­tillery tour is amaz­ing. You get to sam­ple loads of dif­fer­ent types of whisky, not just their own.’ Shop at… ‘Sheri­dan’s (013397 55218, hmsh­eri­dan.co.uk) in Bal­later. The Queen’s butcher is noth­ing short of ex­cel­lent!’ Go for a meal at… ‘Spi­der on a Bi­cy­cle (spi­deron­abi­cy­cle.com), in Aboyne, is my favourite lo­cal cafe. It serves ex­cel­lent sim­ple food in a gor­geous, wel­com­ing set­ting around a lovely log burner.‘
