The bald bobby doesn't look too happy with you Les - good action shot - there isn't anything in the news about this so I assume no-one was hurt?

It was on the lunchtime regional news. I guess that's why you didn't see it. Sky had good coverage of it. Pictures from the Skycopter etc. The good news is no injuries. But the location has made everybody twitchy.

Aye, there's nowt worse than unpolished Paps.

Let's not go there....

Here's my view from the window:

And the omnipresent Paps, from the back road to Portnahaven:

Yet another pic of the Paps, this one taken from the Bowmore Pier.

Willie. I use Photobucket After I upload a picture I right-click in the IMG Code box and select copy and just paste right on to my post. It really can't get too much easier than that!

Many nice pictures posted lately :)
Wave, your picture makes me dream about visiting Islay and drinking Islay whisky while enjoying a locally caught lobster :D

Ahaa! Now I get it.

Thanks Wave, this one's for you. Also I need a change of scenery from Islay, because all the pictures of it are making me wish I was there. :(

Thanks for that pic Willie! I visited Dalwhinnie 5 years ago while I was still using photofilm. A beautiful distilley in an equally beautiful location, I took the train up from Perth direct to Dalwhinnie and back again specially for that distillery which at that time was one of my favorite single malts!

All these pictures do make me wish I was back again, but I just get to reminisce about it until May when I return for my further adventures (4th) of "the whisky trails", desination: Speyside!

Here's a picture from my last holiday in Scotland in '06 taken in the stillroom at Aberfeldy.

Really nice shot Wave. You get a sense of the fantastic location from that. Now I'm getting fed up that I'm not in the highlands :)

Moving on to the Lowlands. I called in to Auchentoshan as I was passing by it last year. I came out with a couple bottles of 12yo.

The lad working in the shop was so cheerful I really wanted to buy stuff from him and ended up with a water jug (I had a pub, I really didn't need any more water jugs!) and a metal bookmark (also something I didn't need).

Lots of really great shots there, good eye WhiskyBrat! I think the day I finally ferry in to Islay, and I see some of these beautiful things, my eyes will be filled with tears of joy!!

DB when you get the chance to go, make sure you have time to visit Jura. It is really such an incredibly different atmosphere to Islay that you shouldn't miss it.

This is the centre of industry:

And this is a traffic jam on the road back to the ferry:

Beautiful Willie JJ! I'll take your advice for sure! Good looking traffic jam, much better than another bumper on either side of your own.

But definitely much much more beautiful though!!! No exhaust fumes either! Well, maybe, but at least it's "natural" gas!

:lol: Oh yeah there were fumes. They really didn't care much for us trying to move them off the road and they expressed their opinions from both ends.

Dunno how I can use it though. When I tried to save it to my machine the hat didn't come with it.

Fergie: I just showed the series of avatar/photo posts to Mrs Musky and her comment when she saw yours was "I like that guy."

You have received the highest accolade available to mankind.
