Courier Country has produced some pretty famous faces over the last few centuries. Some have had statues erected to them, others have buildings named after them but I discovered this week that I am not yet done learning about Dundee's past.
When wandering around Arbroath, Webmor's is not easy to stumble upon. Visitors may be drawn to the cafés and restaurants around the harbour and even when walking through town, this newly occupied coffee shop is set back down an alley from the high street.
This popular little tapas bar in Broughty Ferry has long been a firm favourite with locals and consistently features in the top recommended places to eat in the area on various websites.
The West Port in St Andrews has been described by many as an institution. It has recently undergone a complete renovation and name change.
"Social dining" seems to be the trendy way to eat out at the moment. New restaurants are opening up all over the place and offering sharing plates and modern tapas.
As we bask in the glory of the warm summer sunshine and admire Courier Country and all it has to offer, this week my little girl and I celebrated the strawberry. Of course she loves a chocolate biscuit, but given the choice, she'd reach for the juicy fruit every time.
The temporary road signs are beginning to appear, the grandstands are up and excitement is starting to bubble for the Open.
This was another week I had the pleasure of visiting one of Dundee's newest restaurants. We are so lucky that in this time of regeneration, places are popping up all over the place and the Gidi Grill in City Quay offers something a little bit different.
This week I went back to my happy place and one of my favourite places in Scotland, if not the world. It doesn't have a Michelin star, there are no white tablecloths or espumas, and there isn't a palate-cleansing amuse bouche in sight.
The Bar and Grill is actually in the Clubhouse of the Fairmont rather than the main hotel building, which means that the large windows look out not only onto the prestigious golf course but the most spectacular view of the sea and St Andrews in the distance.
