It was on the lunchtime regional news. I guess that's why you didn't see it. Sky had good coverage of it. Pictures from the Skycopter etc. The good news is no injuries. But the location has made everybody twitchy.

Aye, there's nowt worse than unpolished Paps.

Let's not go there....

Here's my view from the window:

And the omnipresent Paps, from the back road to Portnahaven:

Yet another pic of the Paps, this one taken from the Bowmore Pier.

Willie. I use Photobucket After I upload a picture I right-click in the IMG Code box and select copy and just paste right on to my post. It really can't get too much easier than that!

Wave, your picture makes me dream about visiting Islay and drinking Islay whisky while enjoying a locally caught lobster :D

Thanks for that pic Willie! I visited Dalwhinnie 5 years ago while I was still using photofilm. A beautiful distilley in an equally beautiful location, I took the train up from Perth direct to Dalwhinnie and back again specially for that distillery which at that time was one of my favorite single malts!

All these pictures do make me wish I was back again, but I just get to reminisce about it until May when I return for my further adventures (4th) of "the whisky trails", desination: Speyside!

Here's a picture from my last holiday in Scotland in '06 taken in the stillroom at Aberfeldy.

Cheers!

Moving on to the Lowlands. I called in to Auchentoshan as I was passing by it last year. I came out with a couple bottles of 12yo.

The lad working in the shop was so cheerful I really wanted to buy stuff from him and ended up with a water jug (I had a pub, I really didn't need any more water jugs!) and a metal bookmark (also something I didn't need).

Lots of really great shots there, good eye WhiskyBrat! I think the day I finally ferry in to Islay, and I see some of these beautiful things, my eyes will be filled with tears of joy!!

Beautiful Willie JJ! I'll take your advice for sure! Good looking traffic jam, much better than another bumper on either side of your own.

But definitely much much more beautiful though!!! No exhaust fumes either! Well, maybe, but at least it's "natural" gas!

Fergie: I just showed the series of avatar/photo posts to Mrs Musky and her comment when she saw yours was "I like that guy."

You have received the highest accolade available to mankind.

Sorry to disapoint you MP but my ancestral home is much much more modest than that. But as a local resident I do get free entry whenever I wish.

Took this at the same time as the one above (to much time on my hands), It's more like the 'standard' view of the castle seen on postcards etc.

Cheers.

Makes me want to "storm" it once more. Of course in those days I could storm a castle without having to stop for a breather or two!

The best (only) whisky bar in Fun City Pattaya Thailand.
Over 60 whiskies (18 malts). Hard to find single malts in Thailand but they are slowly arriving as the Thais develop a taste for more than 'Black', 'Blue' and Chivas.
Drop in if you're in the region. Fine drams with fine company.

Nice picture Willie!! I tried to visit the Mortlach distillery while I was staying in Dufftown for several days in '04 but they were down at the time and not doing tours. :cry:

Sunny days seem hard to come by, at least when I'm there. Here's a shot of the Clynelish distillery taken in August of '02

It's a shame that there's no real tours at Mortlach, that's one distillery I would love to roam the warehouses of!! Unfortunately at that time I had just missed the Speyside festival by like a week or so, but I was more interested in the Feis Ila that I did make. 8)

That's the old Clynelish though isn't it? The one that became Brora. The current Clynelish buildings are much less attractive


The one above is a side shot, here's the front side. With everything else much older and rustic in the area it sorta sticks out like a sore thumb.

Nice pictures Willie and Wave. I hope to tour Scotland one day too and when seing your pictures I hope it's going to be sooner rather than later.
Clynelish may not be picturesque but it's a fantastic single malt!
