One of our first ministers sensible savings, Scotland is a small country, so doesn't need a lot of moonlight!. However if she gets Independance there are plans afoot to bottle the moonshine and sell it on the world market.

Stunning indeed Mike - an incredible photo! Thanks for posting it.

Any idea where and by whom it was taken?

Kentucky & Tennessee did that a long time ago!

Of course, they were settled by immigrants from Scotland!

Not just the Scots Blackbat. Jack Daniels of Sour Mash fame originally lived about a mile or two from me here in west Wales. I know that it isn't moonshine; just sayin' is all.
