    Mountains, Distillery, Castle & Cattles

    September 16 in the United Kingdom

    Eigentlich war für heute gar kein Footprint geplant - wir wollten nur noch mal etwas durch die Berge im Cairngorms NP wandern. Doch kurz unterm Gipfel standen wir dann plötzlich mitten in einer riesigen Wolke. Wir konnten kaum noch etwas sehen, es war nass und dazu extrem windig. Anstelle des längeren Abstiegs haben wir uns daher für den direkten Weg nach unten entschieden. Deswegen waren wir am Nachmittag dann noch spontan in der Dallas Dhu Historic Distillery und der Ruine des Balvenie Castles. Dort roch es sehr lecker nach Whisky. Das könnte vielleicht daran gelegen haben, dass sich direkt nebenan die Glenfiddich Destillery befindet. Und seht mal, wen wir auf einer Weide direkt neben der Straße gesehen haben 🐂🙃.Read more

    Lossiemouth, wieder am Strand

    August 20, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    Joachim: Heute haben wir 110 km gefahren und sind nun an einer Beach Bar mit wunderschönem Ausblick gelandet. Hier darf man einfach stehen, haben leckere Gemüse Pfanne im Cobb-Grill gekocht und waren noch zwei Ale trinken, nun geniessen wir den Ausblick.

    Spynie Palace

    August 20, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    Ann: Beeindruckende Burg vom Bischof Murray der dort Könige und andere wichtige Menschen eingeladen hat. Man weiss es nicht genau aber man vermutet das dieser Ort für 8 Bischöfe der ständige sitz war. Es war von Rom aus gesehen der weiteste Bischofsitz. Damals lag die Burg an einem See, heute kann man in der Ferne noch einen kleinen Teich erkennen. Sehr beeindruckend denn der Turm geht über 4 Etagen und das um 13 Jahrhundert.Read more

The Queen is in residence so I couldn't get in then I still got a shot with the Bobby at the front gate full stop through some beautiful country by country and I'm f****** exhausted. The view is f****** spectacularly if the sky clears it'll be on tonight. The highlight today was dunnotar castle absolutely beautiful full stop now I'm hoping through the clouds to break tonightRead more

    Glenfiddich, Dufftown

    July 12, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    From St Andrews we were on a mission to make it to Glenfiddich for the 3pm distillery tour and tastings. Winding narrow country laneways, roadworks and a road closure reqiring a detour put paid to that. We aimed for the 3.30pm after making a phone call to switch tours and made it for the 4pm after parking outside our B & B for tonight and walking to the distillery.
    Not the ideal drive but the scenery was beautiful. I'm sure we drove to the top of the world on a couple of ocassions thru the Cairngorms National Park.
    We did drive thru two ski resort areas and they were huge. The first one, Glenshee has something like 36 chairlifts and 40 runs. There was no snow anywhere but a number of chairlifts were running for people to go walking. The next one was Lecht and even had a mountain bike track down the side of one of the mountains for summer use. Bikes were bouncing about on the track!
    The tour at Glenfiddich was interesting and finishes off with four tastings per person. As I don't like whiskey I would have a sip and hand the rest to Phil. Hence the reason we walked there and wandered back!
    Dinner was at a local a little bit later and the food was quite good. After dinner we walked the local streets in what almost seemed to be a ghost town, with hardly a person or any traffic to be seen. Check out a few other pubs and they too were empty or nearto.
    Best idea was to go home and pour a healthy measure of whiskey liquer.
    Our B & B is a lovely looking old house and we have a corner room upstairs with beautiful views of rolling hills across the road.

    Phil - Ok, today was fun. Yes, I did not get out of bed early enough, and placed pressure on us to get to Glenfiddich on time. But that's where rental cars come in handy. Little Astra was like a rally car around the small roads and laneways that were only one car wide. Yes, I did make up time. (No you didn't).
    The ski fields were great seeing them without snow. This place would be amazing in winter.
    After 8 shots of whisky in 10 minutes, I was primed. Then a great meal at the pub, with another local ale, and a whisky liquer at home. Possibly best day overseas. Lots of fun, as my lovely wife had planned for me.

    B & B life

    July 13, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    The home we stayed in last night has been bought four years ago after being left empty for a number of years as it had been the residence of the Vicar of the church next door.
    It is work in progress and only a few rooms are available at a time as others are being done. Even our lovely upstairs corner rooms new ensuite was missing the shower as the plumber had gone to trek the Himalayas.
    Unfortunately! We had to share the shower room downstairs with the very attractive french male guest!
    Our bed was so cosy, as if it wanted to snuggle around you.
    The Breakfast room downstairs is the place where all food inhibitions are thrown aside.
    A beautiful bowl full of fresh strawberries and blueberries preceded cereals, yoghurts, toast, and the main dish of eggs, bacon, sausage, tomato, mushroom, hash brown and beans, along with juices and hot drinks. Would you like anything else Linda asks!

    Craigellachie

    August 8, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Lundi, 8 août 2016
    Un record nous attend ce matin: 8° dehors, 12°dedans. Nous allumons le chauffage, malgré qu'on est au mois d'août. Ce n'est pas pour rien qu'il reste un peu de neige sur le Cairngorm ( env.1360m). En suivant la rivière Spey, 60km plus loin, nous entamons le Whisky-Trail. Avant notre première dégustation, nous faisons le plein au magasin d'usine chez Walkers, le "Kambly" d'Ecosse. La visite à la Glenfiddich Distillery est très intéressante. Grâce à notre jeune guide, qui parle très distinctement, nous apprenons aussi comment déguster les quatre nectars qui nous sont proposés, du 12, 14, 15 et un spécial sans âge. La visite au Speyside Cooperage, musée et atelier de tonnellerie, ne peut se faire, tous les créneaux horaires de l'après-midi sont déjà complets à 14h, dommage. Un ancien pont, un peu style tour Eiffel, attire notre regard à l'entrée de Craigellachie, où nous prenons nos quartiers au camping Speyside.Read more
