The wife sent for a box of Walkers Strathspey fruit cake, ideal for handing out one cake  to neighbours at Christmas.
Really nice too !  Great with a dod of Wensleydale cheese.
Seem to have lots of shortbread too.  shrugg

To be honest Boaby, first footin' stopped here years ago. The last "do" was at the millennium. We've gone out for a walk on New Years Day for the last 20 or so years, weather permitting, and don't even bother wishing our fellow walkers the complements of the season anymore. In the early years folk were keen to talk but now your lucky if they even make eye contact. Sure it still goes on in some villages and small communities but not in the towns.

SWMBOs parents lived in Banff for many years and as a result when we got married in the 80s it was Walkers who made our wedding cake, very nice it was too.

Was up that way earlier this year and visited the shop in Aberlour resulting in large dent in Bank balance.

We spent a few days on the campsite in Aberlour last year, great walks down into the town and past the factory shop. We did make a few purchases which is more than we did after walking to The Macallan distillery, apart from a cup of tea biggrin

Tunnocks of Uddingston made our wedding cake, not with wafers or caramel logs   hugegrins , back in the day they offered a cake making service..
When the wife's parents lived in Killin, FF was the thing, then ending up in one of the pubs , doors locked , the village Polis would join in later.
