It was mentioned in another thread that it could be cool to have a thread related to whisky travel pics...pics of distilleries or landscapes that are whisky related. I’ll start.

This is the Women's Washroom at Glenmorangie. Rated #1 overall for best facilities of the 22 distilleries we visited that year.

To be clear; it was Mrs. BlueNote who was rating the women's washrooms. I rated the tasting rooms.

The tasting room at Glenfarclas. The panelling and fixtures were salvaged from one of the Canadian Pacific liners. I think it was the Empress of Australia.

@BlueNote loved that place. The people were amongst the nicest I met in the distilleries.

@MadSingleMalt The very same. She called me in when no one was in there. She said "This is the winner, get the camera."

@MadSingleMalt the Glenfarclas tasting room was very cool. The founder loved ships so they did indeed use paneling from a ship.

@nooch Haven't ever made it to Glenlivet, but it certainly looks worth a visit.

These are not whisky related per se, but they are from our trip to Scotland in 2015. The classic Scottish thistle, Holy Island (Lindidfarne), and St Abbs fishing village.

@Hewie Oh yeah. Lindisfarne is brilliant. You can only get there when the tide is low. There was a band called Lindisfarne back in the 70s that did some excellent folk rock.

@BlueNote That's right - you've got to time your trip with the tides. It's got a lot of history!

The grounds at Glen Grant are famous for a reason. The hobbit theme from Lord is the Rings was playing in my head throughout our stroll.

@MadSingleMalt thanks. We spent the whole day there. They have some iconic sheds on the beach made from the hulls of upturned fishing boats. I found the ruins of the old priory quite moving - knowing some of the history of the Viking invasions. We watched seals swimming, and walked along the beach. It is an enchanting place and well worth the visit.

Jack on the rocks, the spring behind us is the source of water for the distillery.

@casualtorture Great stuff. On the rocks with Jack, perfect. I can practically smell that fragrant air.
