Today, I visited the small town of Aberfeldy in central Scotland. This serves both the local community and is popular with visitors.

Above is the famous, General Wade’s Bridge dating from 1733. This was built by the British military as part of an extensive road building project in the Scottish Highlands.

Below is an image of the town’s whisky distillery which is part of the Dewars group and provides tours for visitors.
