6/21 Pitlochery and Anstruther

By now, we were really starting to get the hang of these big English/Scottish breakfasts. We decided what better way to start the day than washing down black pudding with a little local Scotch. We picked Edradour, the smallest distillery in Scotland, for its handcrafted Scotch and because they gave a free tour :) What can I say? We are near the end of our trip and feeling it in our pockets. For some reason they built the place for midgets and Joel was forever running into doorways. I think he was just trying to gain enough pity for more free Scotch.
We left Pitlochery and headed along the coast towards Anstruther(a random pick on the map, just south of St. Andrews). I was not thrilled about being stuck in the car for another long drive, but was pleasantly suprised by what we found. As we were reaching a real lag in our journey, we happened upon a small pick your own strawberry/raspberry farm with a cafe attached just outside of Leven. We stopped in for scones and homemade strawberry jam and then grabbed some raspberries for the road. I had been joking the whole trip about if only we could find a place with the beach, mountains, and farmland than I'd never leave and thats just what we found in Anstruther. It was a real quaint fishing town. Unfortunately, after our quick walk through town it got real cold and started pouring. We spent the rest of the longest day of the year inside reading and playing cards.
