A few miles further on and the small town of Cullen is reached. Cullen is famous for two things, the victorian railway arches that spectacularly carry the railway over two viaducts, and the local speciality soup made from smoked haddock and a cream
and vegetable broth, Cullen skink.
No coincidence that Mrs Baxter started off in business just down the road and today a tin of Cullen skink is a permanet feature in Albert's Kitchen, much beloved by the gourmet granny.
Just before Cullen there
is the tiny harbour of Portknockie, a monument to fisherman everywhere and a tranquil, delightful little cove.
