This morning, I collected guests arriving on early flight at Glasgow Airport. We then proceeded as follows:

  • To Luss and full Scottish breakfast at Loch Lomond Arms. This included a taste of haggis! next a quick walk down through Luss village and a walk on the pier to photograph Loch Lomond basking in unusual Spring sunshine.

  • Next to Glengoyne Distillery near Killearn to join the standard tour and learn about malting, mashing, fermentation, distillation and maturation. This is a pretty distillery located in the shadow of Dumgoyne Hill.
