Scotland, Day 13: Knockando Woolmill, GlenAllachie Distillery, Craigellachie Bridge, Exploring the Grounds at Glen Grant Distillery, an Unexpected Visit to Elchies Estates, Dinner at Highlander Inn

Shortly after our visit to the bridge, Liz and I had a choice: go on the Glenfarclas tour or try to visit Glenturret Distillery (we had heard really great things about the grounds at the distillery). We opted to skip the tour, and chose instead to walk around in the final hour Glenturret was open.

And boy, am I glad we did.


Scotland, Day 12: Cairngorms National Park, Quad Biking through Rothiemurchus Estate, Cardhu Distillery, Strathisla Distillery, the Quaich Bar, Dinner at the Copper Dog

At one segment: there were Highland Cows in the road. And I mean literally in the road. At least two of them were actually taking a nap, right on the road.

Our guide drove up to them slowly, and stood up on her ATV as a means to get their attention and to get them to move. A few did (begrudgingly and slowly) move along.


Scotland, Day 11: The Macallan, Aberlour Distillery, Anniversary Dinner at Dowans Hotel, and a Most Amazing Coincidence

There was another couple, seated at the table next to us: Ian and Susan. Towards the end of the evening, we got to talking with them… and found out that they had won a contest for their charity work, during Covid. And as part of that contest, they chose to have dinner here, tonight.

The reason? It was also their wedding anniversary. And to top it off? It was ALSO their 12th wedding anniversary! What are the odds!?
