Island of Jura

 

Day Five in Scotland began very early with the morning ferry at 6:30 am! We had a beautiful view of the sun rising over the island of Jura.

Once we landed on the otherside of the water we drove to Glasgow. On the way we stopped in the beautiful Inveraray for a cup of coffee.

We also passed Loch Lomond – my first time seeing it in real life. I grew up listening to The Corries, so I was happy to have a view of the bonnie banks o’ Loch Lomond.

Right before entering Glasgow we stumbled upon another whisky distillery, Auchentoshan. You may think after being in Islay that we were whiksied out, but no!

Time for a tasting

 

 

Back in Glasgow we decided to take on the British tradition of a pub crawl. I did a bit of research beforehand to plan our route and it was so much fun. We did manage to stop at some point for a delicious steak.
