Today we were taken to the Glen Ord distillery for a tour and tasting. Diageo (pronounced De arg e o) owns 27 other distilleries as well as this one so we tasted Dalwhinney, which Tom had already tried and placed low on his list of favourites, Singleton, the home brand of this distillery which, with its sweeter taste, is only marketed in Asia and Talisker from the only distillery on the isle of Skye. We are becoming quite choosy about the whisky we drink and Tom still prefers Laphroaig.
This afternoon we had a choice of a boat trip from Plockton to see seals and maybe other marine animals or a walk around an estate in the village. Tom went on the boat while Ruth stretched her legs and admired the scenery. Tom saw lots of seals including babies (and took lots of photos). Then back to the train to travel through more beautiful scenery before stopping for another delightful dinner and the night at Kyle of Lochalsh.
