Selling pretty much everything from knitting wools to Scottish cheeses, George Strachan in Aboyne is a large shop with a long cheese counter, a wall of wines and spirits, trays of sweets, shelves of preserves and seeds, and all the usual larder basics you'd expect from a local convenience store. It's like a corner shop, deli, hardware store and haberdashers rolled into one, the kind of place that proves a godsend to village living. There is another, smaller outlet in Ballater selling the same range of stock – both have particularly good collections of whisky miniatures.
