Glenkinchie Distillery, which is located in a tiny town about 1 hour outside of the city. We woke up nice and early as it was going to take us about 1 1/2 hours to bus there (said google maps). Getting there was slightly hilarious. I didn't find it so funny at the time, hence being a grumpy butt. About two hours or so later we finally arrived at Glenkinchie. I think the highlight of getting there was when our 2nd bus driver told us that this was our stop. There was no bus stop sign, no road signs, and no people. We were in the middle of the country with no cell reception. This was the part of the film where we were stranded in a field for 5 hours. Luckily 10 minutes later a shuttle bus showed up and saved us. In that 10 minutes my camera also decided to have a stroke and stop working. I was not pleased.
We took a tour of the distillery, Remi was all smiles, and then it was tasting time! I didn't realized I liked whiskey, but I do! It's all about sherry casks, man!
After arriving back in Edinburgh we went for lunch at Clarinda's Tearoom, which is a sweet little place on the Royal Mile. We walked around city centre and spent some time in the National Museum.
After the tour we headed down to the Amber Restaurant. Which was recommended to us by our Airbnb host! The food and service was amazing. Our server was so sweet and helpful! We tried a whole bunch of traditional Scottish food, including haggis, which was brilliant.
All in all we had an amazing day! Remi ended up trying 13 different single malt whiskeys, an impressive feat!
We finished our trip the next day with another stop at Clarinda's. The ladies there were so sweet they remember us from the day before! We took a few scones for the road and headed to the train station. Edinburgh really does feel like a home away from home. If you every get the chance, you must go!
Thanks for reading, that was a long one!
