Scotland Trip: Day 5 – Edradour Distillery

I woke to find that Jacqueline had been up and about for a few hours prior. Unable to sleep, she had been to climb over the ropes course at the hostel, and had gone for a short run down to the valley to see if she could see a wild deer.

I ventured out to the department for a little bit of work, but it was a lonely place as most of the academics were away and my officemates were in the US.
