After losing both holidays this year, we both needed a couple of days away… I managed to find a really good deal in Elgin. Cheap because the spa and pool were closed, breakfast was “grab and go” (croissants, biscuits and fruit in a bag to eat in your room)… but I thought I would book it!…

Off we went with dogs in tow to find that we were one of only two couples booked in!

The hotel “Eight Acres” was great… nice room that was spotless and the staff were brilliant!… because the restaurant was closed they suggested using Just Eat to order dinner, which we did and the hotel gave us cutlery and crockery!

We had a fantastic time … we were lucky with the weather and travelled the whole of the coast line from Spey Dolphin view point to Fraserburgh!…, dogs loved it all and wee Pixie loved swimming… fatso Sprout didn’t even like paddling!… It was only two nights but really feel the benefit of it!
