A fine days hike up in the hills #cairngorms #benmacdui #inshriach
Something mad max about a firewood delivery at night. We will get through this 25 tons in the next 18 months. #inshriach
Cue some kind of serve over ice gag. We took a bottle of inshriach gin up to the top of Ben Macdui today. It made it all the way round unscathed (sensible winter walking etiquette) and will now be systematically demolished in front of a fire back at inshriach house. #inshriach #inshriachgin
The Cairngorms are epic today.
That would be the first snow here then.
A bottle of our finest spreading the good word to the people of Toronto. #inshriachontour #inshriachgin #inshriach
Christmas gin production in full swing. This is batch 10 of @fidragin getting itself bottled. #inshriachgin

Some Lepidoptera for your Sunday morning. For the last few years wildlife photographer and major moth enthusiast Nigel Voaden has been coming to inshriach to catch and count and study the moths. This year we introduced a new grazing routine whereby half the farm was left as untouched native wildflower meadow until everything had gone to seed. It has meant having a few less sheep but the place has been humming - buzzing with life and covered by an ever changing carpet of flowers. Moths, some of which have migrated from the Mediterranean, are the bottom of the food chain and are often so specialised that they have evolved to feed and depend on a single species of plant so keeping a rich and natural habitat for these guys in turn supports everything that wants to eat them. Bats, swallows, swifts, house martens, badgers.... and so on. Often nocturnal and well camouflaged its easy to overlook how very important these creatures are. Here are some of the characters who appeared in his traps this year. 1. Antler moth. 2. Bedstraw hawk moth. 3. Nemapogon picarella. 4. Orange swift. 5. Chestnut coloured carpet. 6. Barred carpet. 7. The gothic. 8. Plain clay. 9. Scarce silver Y. 10. Large ear. #moth #cairngormsconnect #inshriach @nigelvoaden #lepidoptera
Will you please STOP ripening and being so perfect and tasty and pickable. I can’t harvest any more. I’m done. #inshriachgin
