Lunch after visiting the small (but good) Farmers Market in Stonehaven. The Carron Restaurant is an amazing place – Art Deco style with lots of original and sympathetically restored features. Owned by the same people as the excellent Tolbooth fish restaurant in Stonehaven. It was lunchtime, I wasn’t too hungry so had 2 starters – very good local crab soup then unusual and excellent deep fried beetroot. Anne had stuffed aubergine which was also excellent. We will be back in the evening. About £30 for two, including a large glass of wine each and coffees.
