It all started with my mother Elizabeth baking shortbread and oatcakes to her own
handed down recipes, for local friends and family, who soon became her dedicated
customers. Our first bakery was in the forest at the foot of the Cairn O’Mount mountain
in Royal Deeside and although we have now moved to the other side of the mountain
very few things have changed.
Our hand baked products are now enjoyed further afield – from Aberdeen to Adelaide
in Australia. My mother no longer bakes the biscuits herself but we have kept things
in the family, with our son Paul who is now the third generation of Duncan’s craft
And most importantly our famous melt in the mouth shortbread and tasty oatcakes are
still baked to the same recipe handed down from my Mother – there are some things
that we will never change.
