Weir: Ginger Beef Stir-Fry

Location: Weir

After a short trip to see salmon leaping up a Scottish river, we returned the next day to cook our one-pot at the same spot with the hope of more entertainment. We weren’t disappointed!

 The man-made weir (cauld) in the river provided an obstacle for the determined fish; various sizes took it in turns to project themselves out of the water in a series of failed attempts. We had mixed emotions watching them – pity, admiration and overall awe. If only they could find the fish ladder 100m away – apparently they do!

We regularly try and ‘eat out’ as a family. Why? Here’s a blog post about it.
