I prefer the ones from Islay myself but I have never had a bad one :wink: 

Here is an easy one for tomorrow.

Was supposed to be going to Islay this Friday. I’ve got an old mate in his 80s who used to do all the driving when we went hillwalking so I was treating him to a weekend to pay him back. Rebooked for September so fingers crossed.

So... the sideboard had 2 Laphroaigs, 1 Bowmore, 1 Irish 12y.o, various Isle of Lewis things, some poteen 😂 , 2 Arran. And the bargain of the year... we were in the Faroe Islands last summer and they had a litre of Ardbeg 10 for about €36 which must have been a mistake.

Anyway, I had just finished a Talisker at the weekend and opened a Highland Park so that’s the choice...

So would I and there is no road nearby so that would rule me out.

I bet you've driven past it many times. Tommy and Maggie. But I think they've been replaced by another sculpture, they were a bit crumbly.
A93 at Glenshee, right opposite the Ski Centre.

Yes I have driven past many times and not noticed them I must have been going too fast!

You have to get up early in the morning to see them 😉

I think they were fibreglass or something. Apparently they were made in 1976 and they had a couple of holes in them. But if you look on the streetview there’s a tubular sculpture there now.

Talking about Google Street View. I noticed this weird thing when I was searching the other week. When you're round about Loch Ness the wee yellow man turns into a wee green thing. I thought it was a ninja turtle at first but still buggered if I can see what it is. Think it's meant to be Nessie.

Telford kirk?

No, I hadn't heard of that one and can't find it on google maps.

It's in Inverness-shire.

Drawn a blank on this. If it was in Inverness-shire and was a Telford church I would have found it. There aren't many.
Plenty other kirks though, the place is fair infested with them Captain, as Dougie would tell you 😂

I thought this would have been fairly easy the photo was taken from the side of the old A9 beside a loch. You will have driven past it many times 😃

Gotcha!   When I first saw it, it was indeed familiar.  I was convinced that that was Cairn Gorm - maybe from Loch Morlich, but there aren't any churches there.

It's Loch Alvie, a few miles south of Aviemore.

Well done, I was crawling about Loch Alvie just as you posted. I was even out my bed.
I often park at Kincraig Church just along the road as there are Ospreys nearby.
