When the Queen arrives at Balmoral in early August it is often barbecue weather. We know that the Duke of Edinburgh (aged 90) is fond of barbecues at Balmoral.
However, as summer turns to autumn, thought turn away from barbecue to log fires! Here we see logs being seasoned ready to burn in the Castle fireplaces.
I am sure it is during evenings around the fire that a wee dram is taken!
