Picked up that GlenCairn glass at Stirling castle while on holiday in Scotland. Managed to get over to Skye and visit the Talisker distillery as well. The aroma in the Taliskar building was heavenly. My wife doesn't like whiskey and even she thought the smell was wonderful.

I also fulfilled a silly goal of mine that I have had from the 1970's. I visited the castles used in the making of Monty Python's "in search of the holy grail" Silly I know. But hey. I did get to tick a box on my bucket list.

Castle Doune, river Teith, Stirling
Castle Striker, loch Laich, Argyll

I hail from Edinburgh, born and bred. Talisker is a particular favourite of mine Bigdog. But my biggest recommendation for you in whisky right now are the top three which were judged as whiskys of the year 2013 by the guru Jim Murray who is the author of 'The Whisky Bible'. http://www.whiskybible.com/

I was fortunate enough to attend awhiskytasting event here in Dubai hosted by Jim Murray. Tasted 15 whiskys and went home sober. He would not allow us to drink them


So here are the top three; particular favourite of mine is the Ballantine's 17 yr old blended whisky:


1: Thomas H. Sazerac Rye (128.6 proof)

2: William Larue Weller (133.5 proof)

3: Ballantine's 17 Years Old

I'll have to check those out.

I really like Scotland. Good folk up there. Not afraid to say what's on their minds. Especially while looking to the south:whatever:

But the weather was dreadful. On Skye. We thought we saw some tumble weeds blowing around. Upon further investigation. We found that they were sheep not shrubbery blowing about. It was wet and windy. Can't imagine going regimental in a kilt. Frozen plums can't be fun.

We flew (good ole Ryan air) into Edinburgh. Hired a car. Stayed at Arrochar on loch long. Then on to Fort Williams. And back to Edinburgh. It was a busy and beautiful 7 days.

This was the view out of our B&B (village inn) at Arrochar

haha, don't get me started on the South.

Weather on the Isles is always poor, no protection unfortunately and I hear you on the kilt front. I have been there on the street in the middle of Winter wearing a kilt...brass monkeys. Our sheep are a hardy bunch haha.

Loch Long, Fort William are tremendous and fantastic fishing. Spent many a weekend up there camping, fishing and drinking the home brew...ah, memories. Something so relaxing about the place and I must say that is one of the best pictures I have seen. That is Scotland to a tee!

Glad you enjoyed yer stay...hast ye bac!

I'm pretty proud of that photo. I Shot it in RAW saved it in 16 bit TIFF and blew it up to 2ft X 2.5ft. It's on the wall of my den. I have another one of Boats at Tarbert bay that also hangs on the wall.

That's another beauty, shot on a wide angle lens, 10-24mm perhaps? Great reflections. Looks cold again, but that's Tarbert for you all year long
