Looks like Bellagio. Makes sense, I hear some really old Macallans come from that region. ;)

Let's see...I'll hazard a guess that it's either Skye or Jura...

Could it be here:

In which case we were pointing cameras at each other but probably at different times.

For those still struggling:

Hi there,

it is the world famous little town of Upton Snotsbury in the West Midlands, UK of course.

But it could as well be on the Isle of Mull, an obscure town called Tobermory. 8)

No, you're all wrong! It's Ballamory of course!

Are you serious? It looks like An t-Eilean Muile to me - as Christian says, the fine town of Balamory. Its whisky is Ledaig.

I guess they all have some similarities there.

BTW, Nick Brown, What is the meaning of your signature?

I stand corrected. I could have sworn it was Balamory and I had always thought Skye was mountainous.

My signature means, literally, whisky is big on me (anns a'Ghàidhlig, ceart!)

Hey Nick

Is mó an uisce beatha orainn go léir :wink:

Direct translation
Very big the whiskey on us together

True translation
We are altogether very big on Whiskey

Meaningful Translation
We are all very big into our whiskey



Irish & scotch gaelic is so very very similar in ways yet have so many different words... below is a prime example. I'm really struggling to know what your saying there.

anns(????) a'Ghàidhlig (??? maybe 'to you'or 'you got'), Ceart (right/correct/true)

The painted houses of Portree often fool folks into thinking Tobermory, but they extend toward the water in the opposite direction.

Here's one taken in the Quirang. If you look closely, you can perhaps make out hikers along a trail, a centimeter in from the left edge, a hair more than halfway up.

Almost: It translates as "in the Gaelic, of course"

Irish and Scottish Gaelic are very similar - I think Scottish Gaelic is derived from the Ulster dialect of Irish. Having said that, there are differences in vocab and pronunciation. For example, the Irish "bothar" does not exist in Scottish Gaelic - even though you'd think such a straightforward word would. We say "rathad" instead. We express thanks with "tapadh leat" - courage with you (familiar form) - whereas Irish has "go raibh maith agat"

Yes Scotland and Ireland are very closely tied in tradition, culture and language ... more so than people realise.


I always laugh at our Irish word for English

Béarla (simply pronounced Bear la)

historically it actually means gibberish :lol: :lol: :lol:
