We love to support independent restaurants so we delighted to hear an authentic Mexican restaurant had opened near our farm in Angus. El Tajín - Authentic Taste of Mexico did not disappoint. Run by Mexican cook, Martha and her Scottish husband, Charles, they bring a bring a ray of Mexican sunshine to Montrose. We started with a round of Margaritas with smokey mescal, then enjoyed zesty guacamole, homemade tortillas and the best refried beans I have ever tasted. Mains were a selection of soft tacos stuffed with pulled goose and Arbroath Smokie, and a delicious pork dish with moreish Chipotle sauce, all accompanied with iconic triad of salsa, green and red chilli sauces.
After more innovative cocktails including a delectable chocolate martini made with Arbikie Gin, we demolished Martha’s epic pecan pie. Tex Mex this certainly is not! Fantastic to see that Martha is incorporating quality local produce in her menus too, with her unique Mexican twist. A fantastic informal hidden gem that you need to discover. @eltajin_scotland@arbikie@atasteofangus#mexican#restaurant#angus#montrose#hiddengem

The formidable Black Canyon of the Gunnison River is an awe-inspiring canyon in the American West most famous for its dramatic depth, extremely steep cliffs, narrowness, and unforgiving darkness. Located in western Colorado and millions of years in the making, the Black Canyon stretches for 77 kilometers (48 miles), with the deepest (and arguably the most spectacular) 22.5-kilometer (14-mile) section making up Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. The canyon reaches a maximum depth of 829.7 meters (2,722 feet) at Warner Point (accessible from the south), making it almost exactly as deep as the tallest free-standing structure in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which is about 828 meters (2,716.5 feet) in height. The canyon is also very narrow, reaching a width of 12 meters (40 feet) at a section called ‘The Narrows.’ The Black Canyon gets its name from the fact that its severe steepness prevents much sunlight from piercing its depths, blanketing much of the canyon in shadow. In fact, author Duane Vandenbusche reports that sections of the Black Canyon only see 33 minutes of sunlight a day! What’s your favorite local canyon?

I didn't choose the American Grafitti-style cover - you could get away with this in 1973. Actually the back of this LP is even worse - the band topless looking like the Vladimir Putin fanclub. Of course it's all about the music and I bought this - from the fantastic Bob's Records on Milton Keynes market - after hearing the mighty title track on a mixtape a friend made. Rock the Nation subsequently appeared on just about every tape of my own for the next few years. The riff by Ronnie Montrose takes the top of your head off. I've only ever heard half this album as it has the same four tracks printed on each side. Mind you, they ain't half bad. Is the rest any good? #vinyl#fromthegarage#Montrose#rockthenation#sammyhagar#ronniemontrose#WEArecords#stadiumrock#70srock#coverart
