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.

Take care, Dr Jim.
You've shared a great time with us Jim. Lovely and quaint!
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. :)

Hi Jim. The fish and chips look good, that is one of my favourite dinners. Something I like to try on my fish and chips from time to time is a little mint sauce. I wonder if you got to taste any whiskey?
Sticky pudding sound so yummy. Is there a recipie for that. Lovely pictures.

stop in for a visit.
Ahhhhh...Scotland, be still my heart!
