Journey's End

1,600 miles later, Vittoria and I are back in the North of England. Normal blogging service will return soon (after a long-anticipated family party, which I am hosting tonight). In the meantime, here are a few pictures of the trip (click to enlarge).

L-R: Vittoria in the Assynt, the Scottish Crannog Centre, my silhouette on the loading ramp of the Islay Ferry, the mash house at the Bruichladdich distillery on Islay, David our guide at the Laphroaig Distillery shows the size of the peat that got away, Laphroaig's wonderful seaside location, a short stout, flat-bottomed Laphroaig still with its upward-sloping lyne arm in the act of producing my favourite tipple, Jonathan Livingstone (showing my age again) over Bowmore Harbour (where the Harbour Inn produces a very decent lunch) and finally New Lanark, which I visited on the run South.

Good to hear you had such a great trip.

Ah Laphroaig the very water of life along with Lagavulin...


You tak the high road and I'll tak the road to the mash house.


Mutter, grumble, complain. I have broken down and registered with Typepad to avoid signing in, however I can't seem to have a photo no matter how I try! I am challenged technically once again and in this instance defeated.

A lot of miles in a short time. I'm sure you'll be sorry to leave her. As CC said before me once again (we are towards the end of the day in this time zone) thanks for sharing the journey with us, thanks to the wonders of WiFi, even in the wilds of Scotland.

Nice photos Tom. Glad that you shared that trip with us.
