An Evening after Edinburgh

Bernie & Beastie have been hosting ‘Whisky with Entertainment’ Evenings bringing knowledge and wit to the Panorama Lounge after dinner. Tonight guests sampled three Cambeltown single malts.

Moored at Leith, next to Britannia the former Royal Yacht, for most of the day, guests made the short journey to see the City of Edinburgh and its Castle, or ventured further to Stirling and Scone.

Now open as a museum, the Royal Yacht sailed over 1 million miles around the world in the 44 years before her retirement, having called at over 600 ports in 135 countries.
Exiting Leith through its lock, and sailing on, gannets were returning in large numbers as we passed Bass rock, an important British sea bird colony.
