DD navigated us from a narrow paved road to a rutted sort of gravel road with the phrase, this must be it and I said out loud, I wouldn't think so! We drove probably five miles on this road and by golly, it was right. We arrived at our destination.
Our room was formally their daughter's bedroom. The room was huge. Outside the window we could see a stable and horses. Across the way, a huge pasture full of sheep. See the small photo on the lower left. The next morning, DH and DD were looking at the window and watched a man on a three wheeler ATV drive up to the sheep. Riding on the back of the ATV was a dog. The man walked around the pasture a bit, then signaled the dog.
That dog worked those sheep from one corner of the pasture to another and back again. The man whistled and pointed and that dog WORKED! They enjoyed the demonstration. Watching a dog herd sheep or cattle is quite the sight. Those dogs LOVE what they do. It was an amazing show and how wonderful to have seen it!
Who knew scotch and chocolate were a wonderful pairing???
I can tell you first hand it is darn good!
You can spend a lot of money on scotch. . .we bought some. . .but, none of these!
Notice how close to the water this course is!
Again, the scenery is so beautiful. I was surprised to learn that golfing has happened here for more than 600 years.
This is the view right next to the course! I sure didn't realize how close the water was from seeing tournaments held here on television.
This is what town looks like. In many of the cities, bricks are used for housing; but, I just thought that all these turrets were unique.
From here it was back to Edinburgh for one more day of seeing Scotland!!!
