Hello to the FPN from just-off-centre-of-anywhere!


Udny is a parish of Aberdeenshire and, at 57 degrees N, is ridiculously far north for an inhabited area.

In fact if we were somewhere else in the world we might be half way between Moscow and St Petersburg, or sinking slowly into the middle of Hudson Bay.


I’m a farmer eking a living from a hillful of prime Aberdeenshire land, (by which I mean stones and water) and I collect fountain pens to take my mind off it.


In particular, I’d like to thank the moderator for letting me in here. I hadn’t expected that.

The Udny Arms Hotel, Newburgh brings back memories from 1980. We stayed there for a while looking for a house which we found in Oldmeldrum.


Then you have the glorious Balmedie beach.


We moved from England and lived in Oldmeldrum from 1980 to 1986.


Lovely place and lovely people.

Welcome to FPN (aka Enablers R Us) from a Florida, USA resident whose maternal grandparents left Kemnay and Aberdeen exactly 100 years ago.  On my last visit, in July, the temperature never rose above 10 degrees C and it rained so much you had to know how to swim to cross the streets.  I miss the Aberdeen butteries.  


Enjoy this place.  It's the friendliest forum I have seen and the assembled knowledge and informed opinions are a gold mine.

I thought I was well north here in Durham, a mere 55°. Mind you, I guess the weather's about the same. Welcome aboard.
