The weather this week has been just beautiful. Crisp morning’s, bright days and brisk evenings. These are the kind of days designed for Porridge 😉 If like me you love autumn and Porridge then perhaps I can suggest the perfect holiday for you; a long weekend in the beautiful Scottish Cairngorms. What is the best time to visit? When the Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championships is on! 😀
Yes I have been blogging a lot over the last few weeks about my bid for Golden Spurtle glory at the 2015 Championships but did you know it’s a spectator sport too? The competition weekend boasts a whole programme of activities including an autumnal craft fair, fun activities for all the family and you can also dance the night away at the post-Porridge competition Ceilidh.
The Golden Spurtle is hosted in the lovely village of Carrbirdge which is a beautiful destination and a good location to visit the Cairngorms national park.
Porridge and a picturesque place to stay, have I sold the Golden Spurtle weekend to you? Then have a look here at great places to stay.
