BANKS’S AMBER BITTER
A glorious evening walk to the top of Bonchester Hill (323m) above Bonchester Bridge in the Scottish Borders. It is the site of an ancient hill fort and looks across the Rule Water valley to Rubers Law (424m) also the site of a hill fort.
FOROYA BJOR LJOST PILSNAR
On the sea cliffs next to Lake Vatnio (also known as Leitisvatn and Sorvagsvatn) on the island of Vagar in the Faroe Islands. A remarkable lake that empties out directly into the sea via a waterfall. Buying a local beer to take this picture was the hardest task that I have had to date, as there is a strict alcohol licensing system in the Faroe Islands with only 6 licensed outlets in the islands, with limited opening hours. However, you can buy light beers in several places and this brew is a mere 2.7%
