I went with couple of friends to have breakfast at the Scone Witch and we enjoyed our scones. I tried the cheddar one with eggs, and I found it delicious. Its location is central, very close to Elgin.

A little bit hard to find but the scones and sconewitches are amazing. I always get turkey and stilton but I'm sure some of the other ones are good too.

Yes. I buy scones to go whenever I can. The caveat is to get there early because they can run out of scones by the end of lunch. They even offer to see frozen scones that you can bake at home.
