a while ago i went into a pub in haddiscoe with a few friends...the minute we walked thru the door it went silent..we drank very quickly and left ...sometimes if you look carefully you can spot the wicker men scattered around the countryside with their victims inside ie "non locals".....(just kidding ..)

Hope you have a fantastic time! Please find a copy of Michael Green's "The Art of Coarse Sailing." It is set in that area and very funny.
