Sorry for the lack of posts this week, but the excitement of our upcoming to Scotland has had me quite busy. Between planning out distillery tours, lodging, ferry rides, sights to see and people to visit I am in a constant state of bliss, and anxiety. But couldn’t be happier about it. A few things are certain/booked, and the rest will come together in the next few weeks. But please feel free to comment with any suggestions. July can’t come fast enough.

That being said, my Trooper is more than excited to join us on this adventure. Enjoy a few of his most recent adventures below. Many more to come. Be sure to follow along on Twitter and Instagram.

  1. These photos and captions just have me grinning from ear to ear! To say you are creative seems weak in light of these masterpieces!

    Your trip to Scotland will be here sooner than you know! Savor the anticipation – it is the second best part of travel!

  2. We all need a little helper like that! I believe this guy need to stand on your square of land when you visit Laphroaig!

  3. Where to begin…

    One of the best distillery tours I’ve done is Aberfeldy. I got to try a 30yo straight from the barrel and it was one of the best I’ve ever tried. If you are going to Edinburgh there are lots of shops on the Royal Mile. Some are tourist traps and others genuinely have unique and interesting drams that you won’t find anywhere else. I’ve bought whisky from both shops towards the bottom end of the Royal Mile. They are near Oink which does great hog roast sandwiches, I usually go for one with haggis and sweet chilli sauce. If you are looking for some culture as well the national gallery and portrait gallery are good, there’s load of other stuff you can do in Edinburgh depending on what you are into. Back to whisky, the Scotch Malt Whisky Society is great for trying different drams but you do have to be a member or guest of a member to go there.

    Hope this helps. Cheers.
