The Old course - where golf was born.
Dear Diary
Scotland rocks! Everyone is so much nicer here. More helpful, happier, and not just 'pretending to be nice' to get a bigger tip.

Had some jetlag problems the last couple of days, but had some big sleeps, so we're back on track now I think.

Went and saw St Andrews, and the (original) golf course. Stayed at a nice B&B up the roasd in Edzell, where we got about 14 hours sleep (!).

Yesterday we went to Dufftown - not where Homer gets his beer, but where the Grant family have their distillery for making Glenfiddich. Did a tour and had a 'wee dram' at the end, which was nice.

Nearly bought a bottle of '50 year old' from the gift shop, but realised I left the $5000 pounds (A$12000?) in my other pants!!!!!

Ended up in Drumnadrochit (Drum-nah-Drogee) for the night at another B&B. It's on the shores of Loch Ness. We're just about to go find the monster - I'll put the pics up of it for you all tomorrow 😊

Had to take these photo's from near the door, there's too much alchohol in the air down on the floor level - high risk of an explosion!

The green (and white) hills of Scotland. Beautiful countryside-It's like a neverending stretch of Boolarra. Should have brought the snowboards!
