... 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).
There was ...
Today we left Edinburgh (so sad) and made our way to Loch Ness to see if we could spot Nessie & go for a swim with it!
It was a rainy rainy day. Definitely typical Scottish weather we are experiencing! But you take it in stride and make the best of it!
The countryside to Loch Ness was beautiful and we arrived just in time for our cruise on lake Loch Ness. I ended up going above on the open part to get ...
Left Inverness and headed along the famous Loch Ness (no monsters to be seen today!) Long day in the car today from 9am until we arrived in Dunoon at 5pm with a few stops along the way.
Travelled through many of the places Dad used to speak about today, Fort William, Strachur, Inverarry, Bute and into Dunon to stay with cousin David and his wife Elaine. Cousin Janice here also so great to catch up. Few drinks to be had tonight and a home cooked ...
Left Aberdeen this morning heading for Inverness. Beautiful drive! We followed signs for the whisky trail and then the signpost for Glenfiddich Distillery 9 miles off our beaten track in Dufftown. So more adventure time, off we went and yes we found it and now we are whisky connosieurs!!
Amazing place and we had a free 1 hour guided tour and all the history of the making of Glenfiddich whisky. It is still in the same ...
... t see him there). We were told that the Earl of Strathmore owns over 14000 acres of land around the castle. Our tour of the castle started with a visit to the numerous gardens around the castle. We got to the castle at the exact same time as a group of very elderly people (even older than Gigi and Papa!). They had no interest in hanging outside for an hour so we got booted outside first. I assume that the gardens would be quite beautiful in the summer but there ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsTulloch Castle Hotel Dingwall
A castle dating back from the 12th century cannot be anything than interesting and the stay there exciting. I did have a nice time been shown around the place and its secrets (escape tunnel, dungeons, secret stairway leading to the top of the tower, and a hidden passage to a small arch bridge leading to the woods and the family cemetery) by the gentle night receptionist, and the girls at the Green Lady bar (named so from the local ghost) were kind enough to furnish me with printed material on the ghost stories that have been reported in the castle. The maintenance appears to be not quite adequate though, apparently there were problems with water heating (a painfull way to find out the meaning of 'Scottish shower'), but that was nothing in comparison to what my fellow travellers had to deal with, as my friend sadly sustained a head injury while struggling with a cold shower himself, which could end really bad due to a missing lever that left a long screw exposed as a potential hazzard, and on top of that, while being moved to another room, one of his suitcases was broken by the young porter... At least, as a compensation, he hadn't been charged for the room, but in the end he felt kind of relieved and rather lucky to leave the place alive and not having to remain there forever, haunting the castle himself...
