You might not know this, but you´ve probably seen Stonehaven a few times. A picture of its castle, Dunnotar Castle, is one of Windows 7´s wallpapers. Stonehaven is also known for something that, for this blog´s purpose, had a lot more interest than that. It is the birthplace of… the deep fried Mars bar!!! and that is exactly what it sounds… A Mars chocolate bar, covered in batter and deep fried in oil.
We went to Aberdeen (Scotland) for a long weekend break. We spent a couple of days in Aberdeen, and also took a day-trip down to Stonehaven. Two very different places, but we enjoyed both of them.
