Back in 2012, David and I made the trek over to Scotland's isolated west coast and the town of Oban. The drive along the A85 was one of the prettiest we've taken in the country. The tour of the distillery was fantastic. The whisky we tasted there was spectacular. And after we left the distillery we hiked up the hill behind it and were treated to a lovely sunset view looking west out towards the Isle of Mull.
It started to rain just after I snapped this photo and we headed back into town for a warm meal. Oban is the type of place that drives a man to drink -- not because it's desolate or boring, but rather because it's so beautiful that you can't help but have a dram while you take it all in.
