Craigellachie - Skywatch Friday


Looking south up the river Spey to the Highland village of Craigellachie (pronounced with the stress on the 'ell', and a soft 'ch', as in 'loch'). To the right of the picture, above the dark trees, are the tall chimney and pagoda roof of the Craigellachie Distillery, founded in 1888.

Canadians know Craigellachie as the place in British Columbia where the last spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway was driven in in 1885.
