Scotland From My Eyes -Day 3 & 4

After a comfortable night's rest ,we were up for the next day of our journey . we planned to cover the glen ord distillery on our way to Avimore. which is the only remaining single malt scotch whiskey distillery on the Black Isle.I don't drink and it was my first visit to any kind of alcohol production unit so I was looking forward to see what is the process being followed.

We saw how barrels are used for storage and how is malting done and once the spirit is formed how is it collected and all. The tour was very informative. the best part was we got to taste some of the finest whiskey  !

We started on the next leg of our journey towards Avimore,which is a town and tourist resort, situated within the Cairngorms National Park in the highlands of Scotland.  We had our night arrangements in the Avimore Bunk House. I got to sleep in the bunk bed for the first time!! Staying with students was fun. There was music and cards all over the place. People were so friendly ! We cooked our dinner in the mess . It was fun  10 people trying to cook at the same time. We were up till late in the night talking to these peoples and enjoying their adventures.

Finally we went to bed around 2 , slightly unhappy as tomorrow was the day we were to start our Journey back home :(

Morning we were up and were ready for breakfast by 8 o clock. We started on our way back. But we did  have lots of fun on the way back  in a theme park. With rides like free fall and treasure island we sure had fun!

It was one of the most fun trips I had! thanks to the lovely friends for such good time!
