A lot of logistics for us today. We fly out of Glasgow, so this meant driving the hour from Edinburgh to Glasglow, stopping to add petrol to the car, before then dropping it off at the airport.

Our last day in Edinburgh (and Scotland), Liz and I decided to just wander around a bit.

We had several drams here, and each and every single one was absolutely delicious. I think right here and now is where I started to really lean towards cask strength Speyside whiskies, very bright and fruit forward.
We arrived a little harried (and of course were the last to sit down). But everyone else was hanging out, having drinks, and getting ready for the evening. We were lucky the first 30 minutes were open like this, as we were so incredibly, terribly, late. But it all ended up working out.
This morning we were leaving Archiestown, heading to our final destination of Edinburgh. We decided to stop off to get some coffee before the long drive (a bit over 3 hours). Which actually was more like 4.5 hours, as we decided to re-route and stop at a distillery on the way.
