Scotland Day 4C

We stopped to eat our packed lunches near this little museum, where you could see how old settlements lived in blackhouses with thatched roofs.

I went for a walk up to the cemetery. I find cemeteries so peaceful.

Some of the group wanted to see the fairy pools, and some wanted to see the distillery. Grant made it all work, he was amazing.

I opted for the distillery tour. We went to Talisker, the oldest working Scotch whisky distillery on the Isle of Skye.

They have barrels from 1979! I am not a Scotch drinker, but I tasted lost of types of whisky, in preparation for this trip. The taste they gave us was yummy and peaty. Still and acquired taste and it was fascinating to learn about the whole distilling process.

We had dinner in Portree. Look at this cute, coloured buildings.

And look, a tea towel with a picture of a Scottish wild cat! Hamish Macbeth has a “domesticated” wildcat named Sonsie, which means “cheeky.”
