    Accident Solicitor in Craigellachie


    The small village of Craigellachie in Moray in Scotland perches high up on a cliff overlooking the rivers Spey and Fiddich. Without the river valley or glen of Fiddich there probably wouldn’t have been such a temptation to visit the village – every year tourists stop off in the village while exploring the Speyside Way on foot to see what gave its name to one of the world’s most famous brands of Scotch whisky.

    Home to two malt whisky distilleries, namely Craigellachie and The Macallan, the village is within easy walking distance of the town of Aberlour and also boasts the Speyside Cooperage as a major employer in the area. The Speyside Way is a long distance hiking trail that stretches from Buckie in the north of Scotland to the famous ski resort of Aviemore in the south of the country.

    While some regard nearby Balvenie Castle as the main attraction, the most important source for tourism must be attributed to the various famous brands of whisky produced locally. Apart from Glenfiddich and The Macallan, there are also the distilleries of The Glenlivet and Aberlour which offer tours to enthusiastic Scotch drinkers.

    Distilleries are interesting places to visit on a hiking tour and are typically very informative, not just on the product they create but also on local history. Every brewery and distillery in the world has one common foe though, tiny as they might be as individuals, their combined force can close a distillery or brewery: mice!

    No self-respecting rodent could possibly ignore tons of grain and malt being stored on their doorstep. No matter how rigorous bottles are washed out before the process or safely stored before usage, somehow these inquisitive little burglars still manage to get into crates where they investigate empty bottles, fall in, get trapped and eventually “embalmed” in some of Britain’s finest beverage during the bottling process.

    Although this rarely happens, there have nonetheless been incidents in the past, where an unwitting purchaser drank a wee dram and got more than he bargained for. You may well feel ill, after spewing out a mouthful of mouse! No doubt the distillery will reimburse you for the spoiled bottle and compensate you handsomely for your upsetting experience.

    Snack bars and restaurants on the other hand are often less inclined to compensate customers when they complain about falling ill after the consumption of a meal. Typically, only a governmental health inspector and a closure notice in the window of their restaurant will persuade proprietors of such unhygienic premises to part with money and compensate injured customers.

    Make a claim with an accident solicitor in Craigellachie if you ordered kippers but were served mouse instead!
