It’s been a while since Mr B and I got out for a usual Friday walk and lunch due to being a bit busy before we went on holiday. We’ve been in Inverness for two years now, and we’ve only really been as far east as Nairn or Culbin for a walk.
We fancied a bracing walk by the coast, so we went 45 miles east into Morayshire, to Lossiemouth to do this route. It definitely was bracing, and harder work on the calves than we were expecting, on account of the sand being very soft!
After setting a good pace for the first two miles along the Lossie river and into the forest, we then were a bit more relaxed for the return leg – watching the waves and the overhead fighter jets doing their practice runs and jumping along the top of the soft sand dunes.
Returning to the car we passed the Seatown area of Lossiemouth – rows and rows of single storey houses. These were once where the fishermen lived; the roofs were used to hang their fishing nets!
After all that exercise, it was definitely time for lunch. After doing a bit of driving about (we drove a couple of miles east to Covesea Cafe which wasn’t open which I was looking forward to, and there didn’t seem to be much on offer in Lossiemouth) we headed into Elgin which was on the way back to Inverness. After parking up we scoured the High Street for suitable lunch options. We found Scribbles Pizza House. Upon entering I saw the plentiful stunning homemade cakes on display by the counter which I took to be a good sign. There was a lunch menu on offer but as we had worked up an appetite we chose pizzas from the main menu.
Mr B chose the medium Deep Pan Scribbles Supreme which he described as excellent – the dough soft as a pillow with plenty of tasty toppings.
My small thin and crispy pulled pork pizza base was excellent, my only gripe being that there was an adequate but not generous topping of the pork. That said, I was still very happy with my choice. (I don’t think my iphone pictures really do the pizzas justice!)
We would definitely choose this place again for a lunchtime or evening meal if we were near to Elgin in the future. Good value too(2 pizzas, 2 soft drinks, 1 cake and an espresso came to £26)!
