Sweeties and peat with gray background367 viewsMy wife makes a confection called tablet, which is in the dish. We enjoy Laphroaig, and Ardbeg whisky, which are very peaty. Hence the title. The background is two sheets of gold colored "cardboard". The photo was GIMPed in order to eliminate the seam between the two pieces of cardboard. However, the editing did not work as well with this background.

Sweeties and peat with charcoal background ... GIMPed 367 viewsMy wife makes a confection called tablet, which is in the dish. We enjoy Laphroaig, and Ardbeg whisky, which are very peaty. Hence the title. The background is two sheets of gray colored "cardboard". The photo was GIMPed in a random fashion to see what would happen. I rather liked this image, especially the off-color "shadow" revealed.

Laphroaig distillery from just outside the "peat fire"350 viewsA rather dreich (dreary) day. We were touring the distillery and I stepped outside for a moment.
This information is from Wiki: "The meaning of the toponym is unknown but a commonly suggested derivation implies the elements "lag" (Gaelic: hollow), "breid" (Norse: broad) and "vik" (Norse: bay), implying an original Gaelic form something like "Lag Bhròdhaig" (the hollow of Broadbay). The name may be related to a placename on the east coast of Islay, "Pròaig", again suggested as meaning "broad bay"."

Carraig Fhada Lighthouse348 viewsNear Kilnaughton (Cill Neachtain) Bay. This was a short walk from the B&B (Samhchair: pronounced "Sahcurr" and meaning tranquility) that we stayed in at the beginning and end of our trip.
