Was over in cycling and holidaying in Barra recently for what we call in Gaelic am mìos pògan. Translated it means The Month of Kisses, which you'll know as Honeymoon. I was very chuffed to find that the good lady had packed a few bottles of Ossian into our saddle bags. The beer was greatly enjoyed with our sandwiches at the top of the neolithic and bronze age hillforts that we visited. That's the mighty Atlantic behind me standing on top of the very dramatic and naturally-fortified Dùn Bàn, a few miles west of Castlebay.
I had thought about taking over a polypin on my bike (as below when I delivered beer to the Gordon Duncan Memorial National Treasure concert in Perth Concert Hall) on the ferry from Oban to Barra, but decided in the end that my main tipple would be whisky as Barra was where Whisky Galore was filmed (although the island in Compton Mackenzie's book is Todday)and because the 36 pint polypin might have been all drunk during the 7 hour ferry crossing! So the Ossian bottles were a real treat. Tapadh leat mo leannan-sa bhriagha! Thanks my lovely darling!
Back at the brewery now and getting on with sorting out draught Lia Fail for export to Sweden.
In the meantime Happy Cycling! And Monthes of Kisses!
