Postcards from Scotland [Part V]
| October 3, 2017

Hey guys! The tour you see today led us from the North down direction South along the East coast: walking through the city Inverness, having a fairy tale moment in Ballindalloch and dreaming in Aberlour. Let's have a look!


Here you see two pictures I took from the Inverness Castle, where you have a nice view over the peaceful city. We had a look at the Kiltmaker Visitor Centre right before - stunning how many varieties of tartans the Scots have.

Glenfarclas Distillery

Glenfarclas distillery is a Speyside whisky distillery in BallindallochScotlandGlenfarclas translates as meaning valley of the green grass.
The distillery is owned and run by the Grant family and has six stills which are the largest on Speyside.

Ballindalloch Castle

Ballindalloch Castle, known as the "pearl of the north", is a Scottish castle located in BanffshireScotland. It has been the family home of Macpherson-Grants since 1546 - and we casually met the landlord.

Aberlour / Where to stay / Where to eat

This place combines everything a tourist needs: perfect location for several day trips experiencing the Speyside (Castles, Nature, a big amount of Whisky Distilleries, home of the Walkers shortbread - mhmm!...), a very nice pub called Mash Tun that offers delicious food for an average price (the tomato soup was just amazing!!) and a perfect B&B, which is also the Mash Tun!
It's one of our favorite places (you might have already guessed it haha) with a pub atmosphere in the restaurant and a comfortable accommodation in the upper floors - and everything is whisky themed (of course).
