These are shots from around Aberfeldy and the nearby town of Pitlochry.  We started our tour of Pitlochry with the Moulin Brewery behind the Moulin Hotel. It is a small brewery that only makes enough for the hotel and one other pub.  Then we went to the Edradour Distillery, and drove around the countryside seeing various cool things like Loch Tay and the Fortingall Yew Tree
