Back from Scotland

My oldest friend and I undertook a trip to Scotland this past week with the expressed goal of trying as many different Scottish whiskies as was humanly possible. Ok, not exactly true – this was his expressed goal. Unlike him, I have been on a Scottish whisky trail before and I am not what one might call a whisky lover, so my goal was to get a better look at Scotland the country than what I had managed in the past. Along the way, I did not mind getting a whisky taste or two.

The picture below was a fairly common still life occurrence on this phenomenal trip.
 

 
We did not take a single picture with the tasting-glasses empty, but believe me when I assure you that they were all duly emptied.

We visited twelve Highlands and Speyside distilleries in total, in addition to three World Heritage sites to boost up my total, two interesting stand-alone castles, and frequent random picturesque stops along our route. As I progress through photo post-processing, all of the highlights of the trip will appear in this space.
