That has to be the Quiraing on the Isle of Skye. I saw a picture in a guide book in 1997 that described the scene as the desolate tablelands of Skye and I said to myself I have to go there, I have to see that. And I have and I have taken five other people with me on four other trips. I find it irresistible and I think that I might suggest my ashes be scattered there. It would be an reason for some others to visit on my dime or perhaps for some of my "guests" to revisit. I would suggest a better drink than Johnny Walker, perhaps Clynelish or Skye's own Talisker.

A very moving tale in so few words and images.

Thanks for the moment.

A very moving commercial. I thought that they were going to be spreading their fathers ashes out to sea.
Then the brother disappeared in the forest then I knew.
Very touching, well done.
Merry Christmass to all and to all good drinking.
