This evening, I am posting information on Inchcolm Island in Scotland’s Firth of Forth ( bay or estuary) near Edinburgh.

Inchcolm, or ‘Island of Colm’ is home to a wealth of history and offers excellent views of the famous Firth which is a busy shipping channel and spanned by the famous Forth Bridges, with a third bridge currently under construction.

This morning, I collected guests from central Glasgow and then proceeded on a tour, visiting three local whisky distilleries plus a short visit to Doune Castle. Although each of the distilleries displays unique idiosyncrasies and history, the whisky making process is identical entailing malting, mashing, fermentation, distillation and maturation. We fisrt called in for the 10.00 am tour at Auchentoshan and then moved on to Glengoyne, lunch at the Beech Tree Inn, a brief visit to Doune Castle with tour culminating in a visit to Deanston Distillery. The weather progressively improved after a poor start featuring heavy rain showers. Our route entailed driving through gently rolling countryside of the Trossachs region.

Distance covered was about 15km (9 miles) and took in Perth city, the River Tay and Kinnoull Hill. Weather was clement, which augmented the experience in providing good photo opportunities.
