... br> Did you know the original gaelic word for whisky is usige ? (Try saying it out loud)

At the end of the tour we had a wee dram of the 12 year old Tomatin. It wasn't bad, but not a patch on the Glenlivet or Glenfiddich.

From the distillery we headed to the Loch for the cruise. To get there we passed through the outskirts of Inverness. And past the turn off for Cawdor castle. (we will get there after all this band stuff is over).

... a little rain never hurt anyone (or my camera too much). The fog and must against the mountains were pretty cool as was the castle ruins that we got to see. Sadly, no Nessie spottings today, my eye or sonar.

... but these were mostly explained in terms of a temperature inversion due to surface heating and various other natural phenomena.

One of the final problems of having a large monster in the loch is that the food chain is so impoverished (due to the lack of nutrients and limited light penetration) that there are only about 20 tons of salmon and trout in the whole loch, and this isn’t sufficient to support any carnivorous creature bigger than the large sturgeon ...
