The Potting Shed Tearoom, Aviemore

The Potting Shed is just south of Aviemore in Scotland.  Not only does it feature an amazing selection of teas and cakes there is a large window where you can view many little birds feeding of the bird feeders.

I could sit here for days watching all the birds.  You may also be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a red squirrel.  We have been here twice now and after sitting there for 20 minutes one arrived.  He knew he was being watched, however, and stayed tucked behind the trees.

On the drive up, be sure to stop off at the House of Bruar where you can buy lots of lovely Scottish produce.
