Carbost(1)

Talisker Distillery(9 May 2006)


Talisker蒸留所のあるCarbostへはPortreeからバスで30分程。9時発のバスがあるので少し早めに朝食を済ませてバス停に行った。しかし9時を過ぎてもバスが来ない。おかしいと思って時刻表を確認すると翌週から運行されるバスだった。次のバスは1時前までない。
こういう時はTourist Informationが頼りになる。スタッフに聞くとタクシーで20ポンドぐらいで行けるとのこと。バス停近くに客待ちしているタクシーに乗って蒸留所に向かった。

There is Talisker Distillery in Carbost. It takes about for 30 minutes from Portree to Carbost by bus. According to the timetable I got by the internet when I was planning a tour, there was a bus to Carbost at 9 o’clock. I had a breakfast quickly and I went to bus stop in Portree. However, the bus didn’t come. I checked the timetable again, and the bus was operated from next week. The next bus was at 1 PM.
If you have such a problem, you should go to a Tourist Information in Scotland. They are really reliable. I went to a Tourist Information near the bus stop. According to them, I was able to go to Carbost by taxi and the cost was about 20 pounds. I got on a waiting taxi near a bus stop, and I left for Carbost.


Enjoy Pints!(9 May 2006)


Talisker蒸留所を後にしたのが12時前。バスまでは2時間以上ある。写真を撮るにはたっぷりの時間がある。その前にまずは1杯とCarbostにある唯一のPub、Old Innに入る。期待通りに地元のリアルエールが2種類もある。こいつはいい。とりあえずRed Cuillin Real Aleとバゲットサンドイッチで腹ごしらえ。他のゲストがカウンター脇を通ってテラスに行っている。何かあるのかなと思い、食べ終わってテラスに出ると、それはもう素晴らしいの一言に尽きる眺め。天気もよく、時折爽やかな潮風が心地よい。この状況でエールを飲まないというのは不可能だった。

I left Talisker Distillery around noon. The next bus to Portree was in 2 hours. I had enough time for taking photographs. Before everything, I wanted to have a pint. I visited to The Old Inn, which was the only pub in Carbost. Fortunately, they had some kinds of ale, especially 2 local cask ales.
“Great!”
First, I ordered a pint of Red Cuillin Ale and Baguette Sandwich for my lunch. After I had a lunch, I went out to a terrace with a glass of ale. Then, I was able to see the beautiful scenery from the terrace. The weather was comfortable and sometimes a sea breeze blew lightly. I didn’t know how I could resist ale in this situation.
Finally, I drank four pints of ale.
