Corner View - Water
Here in Scotland water is something we know a lot about.....it surrounds our island country and it is often to be found falling from the sky! We live with the constant threat of water all around us.....we have so many names of rain....like the Inuit and snow. Think of smirr, the soft mist of rain that leaves you soaked, but is so gentle you are not even sure it is worth putting up the umbrella. Or think of a dreich day, one that is grey and wet or being drookit.....soaked to the skin!
Can you see the rain?
The sea is another always present reminder of water. Indeed, I am not sure I could live far from the sea....I love to walk on the beach, to hear the waves crashing on the rocks, to smell the seaweed and to hear the seagulls.....
Or perhaps the most famous water of all - the Gaelic uisge'beah - water of life, otherwise known as whisky! Scotland's most famous export.....
Distillery - Islay
Saligo Bay, Islay - more water!
