Watery Wednesday - Glen Grant water
Dark, peaty water. The stuff Glen Grant whisky is made of. This is the Glen Grant burn ('burn' is the Scots word for stream) rushing down towards the distillery, almost as if it's in a hurry to be turned into the water of life.
Once the water destined for steeping with the malted barley has been piped away securely into the distillery, the burn is divided again. The narrow channel in the foreground takes water into a lade, from which it will be pumped to condense the distilled spirit.
What's left - and there's plenty - goes rushing free, down through the village and into the River Spey. Growing up on Speyside, water for me meant two things - whisky and salmon fishing.
This is my first Watery Wednesday post. I don't quite know why I'm joining another meme. I have no time as it is. But when I saw these photos from the summer in my folder they whispered 'Watery Wednesday' to me.
Enjoy visiting watery delights here.
