Highland Cows and the Glenfiddich Distillery

One of the days that Philip was here, we decided to tour Balvenie Castle and Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown. It's about an hour or so from Aberdeen. On the way there, we had to stop at one of my favorite places: The Pitstop!

Our next stop was Balvenie Castle. Unfortunately it was closed. Fortunately, the highland cows didn't get the message. Prepare for cuteness.

It was really muddy in some areas! They walked through like it was nothing. Nae bother.

Lastly, we walked across the street to the Glenfiddich Distillery. The tour is free, and you get to taste three drams of whiskey at the end. I learned that "Glenfiddich" is a Gaelic word meaning 'valley of the deer'. If you don't want to see pictures inside the distillery, you should not scroll any further.

A peek inside!

Tasting time! I liked the 15 year best.
