|Of course, we had to visit Aberdeen beach and show off the new off-shore wind farm|
I think the highlight of the holiday for all of us was our bus tour from Inverness to Skye. It was a long day, but the views were truly stunning.
|Old Man of Storr|
|Eilean Donan Castle|
|Returning to Inverness|
We got the VIP treatment at The Macallan Distillery, thanks to Pat's brother. Actually, I think everyone gets this sort of treatment; everyone else just has to pay for it!
|Yes, the distillery has their own highland cows.|
|This wall of whisky is insured for £19M, if I recall accurately.|
|The biggest mash tun in Scotland.|
|Yep! Five tastes, including the raw spirit.|
We also visited the Knockando Woolen Mill in Speyside.
Edinbugh is always bustling, but at least it was quieter than when the Festival is on...and it was dry this time.
|St Giles' Cathedral|
|The Royal Mile|
|The ever-present piper|
|Sir Walter Scott Monument|
Our bus trip from Edinburgh was somewhat disappointing after our Skye trip, but my parents saw some sights they had not seen before, as did Pat and I.
We also visited Pitmedden Garden and Museum of Farming Life in Aberdeenshire.
