The Famous Grouse Experience is a nice tour of the Scotland’s oldest distillery, Glenturret. This is a short drive from our B&B in Crieff, which is outside of Glasgow a bit. Some of the Famous Grouse Scotch Whiskeys are made there. Most of the effort is in one ingredient, the Glenturret single malt. (link)
We were there in the Fall of 2007 after my knee had fairly well recovered. I had fallen in Ireland earlier in the Spring and broke my kneecap. So we had to come home then. (link) Now we got to see Scotland after all.
There was a nice little snack shop where we purchased some pastry and had a sample sandwich. That made a nice tide-me-over till supper time.
The sign said garden. This is it, not a garden to tramp around in but instead a nice water garden to watch from their nice foot bridge.
When we got back to Crieff we were very ready for a nice fish 'n' chips plate with mushy peas. After supper Mrs. Jim had some sticky taffy pudding. The whole meal was sumptuous. We would eat in that little cafe quite often.
You two make a great looking couple.
Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)
Here is my Ruby Tuesday entry.
Thank you so much for visiting my twitter account, Dr Jim. I'm so grateful. The picture was my friend's pet dog in the Philippines. It was taken a few months ago. They've 7 pet dogs at home.
Take care, Dr Jim.
Beautiful water garden.
I had to smile at your title. I was out taking pictures yesterday of the fall leaves and we were on a back road when a grouse ran across our path. I saw one last fall and now this one. Never got a chance for a picture or I could have had my own Famous Grouse Experience. :)

and for sure did you know that both of bernie's parents were born in glasgow and that i think makes bernie 100 per cent real scotch.
