We also visited with Graham and took a few more shots near the Foyers Falls, once a source of inspiration for Robert Burns. So we sampled some Haggis flavoured crisps in his honour.
After a lovely dinner at the Lovat, including a very fancy chicken and leek potpie, we hotfooted it back to our office in Drum (read Fiddler’s) for a nightcap. We ended up at Jon’s house where he was hosting a few of his friends in the malt whisky world, Ian and Rhianna.
Ian is a Scottish artist based in Germany who travels around painting distilleries. He must be considered the luckiest man in Scotland (at least one of the top five). Rhianna is a journalist from the Netherlands with a passion for whisky. She’s on a five month Scottish journey to uncover stories and single malts.
Neither had seen the monster. Even after a few drams.
With only two days to go, we were still missing a month or two, if you follow a Gregorian calendar. Perhaps no one would actually ‘miss’ February. At least not in Canada.
We’d have to wait and see what one more day around the loch would bring.
