    How do you pronounce this. Row rhyming with crow. Orrnow? Got to be a winter thing I think but I would try one. sound a bit like scotch pancakes. Which come to think of it I haven't eaten for years.

    I really thought you had received at least one on my various visits. I know wiskey and spangles did, but that's all I can remember

    I saw a cajun-spiced rowie in the baker not long ago. Flavour of the week! :D

    For the Union - ie anti-independence.

    I can remember back to the time when Mackie's made a fairly principled stand against the Tories by going out of their way to offer jobs to people remaindered by cutbacks - at the same pay grades and similar conditions.

    Whatever his politics (Old-style Liberal) and uber-worthy status, old Sir Maitland was IME a rare, genuinely good man who did a lot for this part of the world and its people. I worked quite a bit with him in his last years (he was also on our board) and saw at first hand how hard he went at it - well above and beyond virtually all the other members and with none of the elitism/standoffishness of most. Its a lot more complex than them just being Yoons. In most other ways, their corporate values are just about in the right place!

    And it seems you can get them from the honesty box outside her house too. I think I'll be stopping whenever I pass by now.

    She has a drop-off/outlet in Banchory and maybe Stony soon. :)

    They are worth it - Even third-day, heatup under the grill and its a delicious crispy outside but still soft and fluffy inside - Lovely

    Told us she uses 50/50 butter/Lard in her recipe and they are nae too salty either. :D
