    You know, I agree. It was a bit of a personal statement, and I wasn't being objective.

    Hopefully not too off topic but we really enjoyed our visit to Scotland many years ago. Largely did the B&B thing, which was great. We still remember the guide at the tour of Edinburgh castle. Very funny ("During one battle, it was 10 Englishmen for every 1 Scot. We considered that a fair fight.")

    I don't know what your travel arrangements are, but there is/was an overnight train from Glasgow to London and from Edinburgh to London. Very useful for gaining a bit of extra daylight time during your visit.

    This topic got me curious, so I googled a bit and found that some distilleries prohibit photography (and most electronics) because of the potential for an explosive atmosphere in the facility. It sounds a little screwy to me, but I don't know that much about how distilleries work and maybe they really do face enough alcohol fumes that sparks are a danger.

    If that's the concern, they might be open to someone with a non-electronic camera...

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    That was my thoughts. Take a leaf shutter and some high speed film. Who needs electronics! This is APUG afterall!

    Great tips all. I think the idea of sparking a fire is ludicrous, but if it somehow did, could you imagine the damage to the business?

    Looks as though it would be a case by case basis. I will let you all know what Talisker says. I may not be able to photograph, but there are worse things one can't do at a distillery.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    I toured FDRs Little White House in Warm Springs GA and they asked for no flash but take all the photos you like. I did'nt have any fast film so I turned the D70 up to ISO800 and got some OK shots. Got some film shots outside with the N80.

    We visited Talisker in 2006 and have the pictures to prove it! There was no problem at all, then. Oh, and you'll really enjoy their "sample". The most generous sample I've ever had! Had it before the tour, which gave it just enough time to work before they took you to their store. They're not stupid!

    Just got an email back. Nothing allowed from Talisker...

    Hi Robert

    It is true, Diageo do not allow photography in any of our distilleries because of the presence of flammable atmospheres. Sorry.

    Kind regards
