Devised by Bill Forbes, originally ...

Devised by Bill Forbes, originally from Buckie, for Anne Taylor of Fochabers (Moray). Strathlene, on the eastern outskirts of Buckie, (Banffshire) has wonderful winding paths - a hiker’s paradise - leading away from the sea up to the golf course. The Braes cradle a fairly large holiday park overlooking the Moray Firth, famous for its sunsets - an unbelievable view. The Village of Findochty nestles to the East of the Braes and is where Anne grew up. “PS. I am not employed by the Scottish Tourist Board,” writes Bill Forbes.
