    Pitlochry and more

    October 11, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    Photos of:
    Blair Castle, near the village of Blair Atholl in Perthshire, and its beautiful grounds and gardens;
    Queen's View, a short distance from Pitlochry, along a winding tree-lined road, hugging the River Tummel. The view looks directly to the west along Loch Tummel;
    Pitlochry, largely a Victorian town, which developed into a tourist resort because of Queen Victoria visiting the area in 1842 and the arrival of the railway in 1863.Read more

    Perth

    August 14, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Dimanche, 14 août 2016
    Notre camping-car a, pour la première fois ces vacances, congé aujourd'hui. Nous allons en taxi aux Highlandgames à Perth. C'est fabuleux, des jeux de toute sorte, un concours de danses écossaises et de pipers. Avec le tir à la corde, on se serait presque cru à une fête des jeunesses vaudoises. Quatres pipe-bands, un canadien, deux écossais et un d'un collège du Zimbabwe ont paradé. Une véritable fête populaire, très correcte -very british-, des participants indigènes et des touristes: nous l'avons beaucoup aimée. Il nous manquait juste les chaises pliables, que tous les habitués ont apportées. Le soleil a apporté sa part au succès de la fête. A 17.30h tout le monde part, les nombreux stands et food-trucks sont rangés et le terrain propre en ordre, incroyable. Nous rentrons à pied les 5km au camping.Read more

    Rainy Day to Perth

    September 24, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Stayed up too late watching UK PBS mystery movies so the alarm at 7:30 am was a bit harsh. Breakfast in the dining room this time, not the pub shown in the photo. The pub has a red deer head supposedly shot by Queen Victoria's Scottish personal assitant [ http://www.royal-deeside.org.uk/rdhistory/johnbrown.htm,], John Brown. Peter had the local equivalent to shredded wheat with yogurt and fruit, while Diane tried the poached eggs and poached smoked haddack, which was lovely. Then we were off to Perth by way of a couple of stops.

    The day started out cloudy with a peak of sunlight as we traveled through Inverness, then we hit the rain that had been hammering the West coast oernight. It was steady for us, but not a torrent. It continued throughout the afternoon and early evening.

    There were really no destinations along the way until we arrived to Pitlochry where we were intending to go to Edradour distillery but first ended up at Bell's distillery, which had beautiful flowers against their grey buildings. Edradour was a great https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edradour_distillery] . Looked like it had been recently paintd clean white and red. Edradour used to be the smallest distillery in Scotland, but a couple of newstarts have come on the scene. They only do small batches, 15 barrels a week and they have a plethera of ways to age in different types of barrels. Exceedingly nice tour for only 7 pounds with 2 different whiskey tastings (now quite ful dramseach) and the tasting glass! Tour was easily an hour and very instructive.

    After that, we moved a few miles down the road to Dunkeld where Peter popped into the "Naked Sheep" for a sweater and a new driving cap. Then we toured the Dunfeld Abbey [ http://www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/dunkeld/cathedral/] .

    After that, w were ready to take our chances on traveling back into the city of Perth. The Heidl B&B is very near downtown. The hostess asked where we had been and told us that she was in fact from Orkney and after a bit more conversation, we found out that she is best friends for 25 years with Julie and Mike, our Orkney hosts!. Small world!

    Dinner was at the local Indian restaurant down the street. Very good South Indian street food including haggis in an Indian chilie sauce, which was very good.

    Tomorrow will be a short move to Edinburgh after a diversion to Sterling to the Sterling castle.
