My favorite Irish pub

Gertie Brown's Pub in Athlone, Ireland.  There was a big block of wood burning in the fireplace.  The obligatory Guinness everyday was an automatic 17 grams of carbohydrates.

Perth: The Black Watch Museum

This amazing painting depicts a true event that occurred to the Black Watch.  They stood fast as the ship was literally breaking apart underneath them.

A Man's A Man for A' That

Robert Burns is a great Scottish poet.  The Scots eat Haggis on his birthday, January 25. 

Macallan 13 year old Scotch

I usually don't buy Macallan Scotch in America.  I think it is overpriced.  The best part of travel is serendipity.  We were driving randomly and came upon the Macallan distillery.  We found a treasure in the form of a special release of Scotch only sold at the distillery.  It's the best Scotch I ever tasted.
