    Town Centre of Elgin(22 Sep 2007)

    町の中心広場にある大きな教会、St Giles’ Churchは1224年に創設された歴史のある教会で現在の建物は1826年に建てられた。他にも古い教会がいくつか残っている。
    歴史を感じさせる町を散策し、疲れたらパブで休憩。Gordon & MacPhailのショップでお土産探しと酒飲みには最適な町だった。

    Elgin is one of the oldest Royal Burgh in Scotland, probably existed in early of 11 century. Scottish King, David 1st chartered as a Royal Burgh in 1136. Elgin would be a capital in this area at that time. A lot of old buildings still stay in the town.
    There is the big church, St Giles’ Church in Elgin Town Centre. It was established in 1224, they has a long history. Current buildings were rebuild in 1826, and other some old churches are in the town.
    I took a walk in the historical town and had a break in a pub when I tired. And I enjoyed shopping to look for souvenir at Gordon & MacPhail shop.
    Elgin is one of the best town for drinker!

    Benriach Distillery(21 Sep 2007)


    Benriach Distillery was built next to Longmorn Distillery by owner of Glenlossie Distillery as the his third distillery. However, business expansion completely seems to be failure and the distillery stopped the operation as early as 1900.
    Benriach Distillery was purchased by Glenlivet distillery, and the operation was finally reopened in 1965. It became a part of Chivas Brothers in 1978.
    The operation was stopped again in 2002, and has become an independence distillery under the new owner in 2004. In 2012, they have restarted a floor malting which they did until 1999. The variations of the product increase.

    Even the prosperous inevitably decay(22 Sep 2007)


    When I saw the huge ruins of Elgin Cathedral, I imagined the best period of the Cathedral and I reminded opening lines of Tale of the Heike that I had memorized when I was a high school student.
    The sound of the bell of Gion-shoja, rings with the transience of all things.
    The color of the flowers of paired sal trees, shows the truth that all glories must fade.

    Coleburn Distillery(21 Sep 2007)


    Coleburn Distillery is not far from A941 which is a main road connected from Elgin to Craigellachie, on a map. I had gone along it by bus several times. I thought I would be able to watch Coleburn Distillery on the bus, so I looked for the the distillery every time.
    However, I understood that anyone wasn’t able to see Coleburn Distillery on the bus, it was surrounded by many trees.
