The travel gods have been looking after us. Okay we are somewhat experienced travellers and we are flexible, so I suppose that has helped. But we have been darned lucky as well. This morning we made a somewhat premeditated stop at the Glenmorangie distillery for a tour and some whiskey tasting. I’m not a whiskey drinker, but Don is, and it was a bit like going to a winery, and quite interesting as a one off experience. 20130711-165722.jpgThe whiskey distillery was for him, but the lunch stop was for me. In a small town by the name of Dornoch, we lunched at the Dornoch Patisserie and Cafe. I believe the following photo will show you how it was….
After lunch we made another of our exquisite castle and garden finds when we stopped at the Dunrobin Castle and Gardens. Each of these estates had their own unique character and this one was a more formal style with gardens reminiscent of those at Versailles near Paris.
Our final stop for the night was the Royal Marine Hotel in Brora. It was an old style hotel complete with billiard room and resident cat!
