    Isle of Skye is a dream location. I used the 10-24 and 50-140 .

    Great images. The light on the Skye is something else - whether it be sunrise or sunset.

    Skye is beautiful.
    If you get the chance, visit St Kilda, it’s stunning and remote

    They also make a pretty good single malt Scotch nearby.

    Jealous ! have shot in same bay and your lovely shots are so much better. Love #1.
    Re: their local whiskey is excellent but terribly expensive so passed on it. The next day went Paris, as you do, and came across the same Talisker whiskey at exactly half the price ! Strange.

    As well as 20% VAT per bottle the alcohol duty is £28.74 per litre of pure alcohol - so a 40% whisky attracts £11.50 in alcohol duty. That's not due if the whisky is exported. Many years ago I worked for a UK whisky company who would sell a case(12 750ml bottles) of blended whisky delivered to the UK port of choice for £7.50. At that time a single bottle sold in the UK was £5.

    It’s a major point of grievance in Scotland, to the point that vodka is now the most popular alcoholic beveridge.
    My family also connected to the whisky industry which is probably Scotland’s biggest export, and earns more than even the oil does.
    Where I live is a major malting barley area supporting many jobs in malting, granaries, haulage and farming. My brother owns a grain haulage business, and I often drive to distilleries at the weekends.
    I work in the oil industry as an engineer, the oil being the other main source of employment
