Where the peaty brown river meets the sea.
Where the water flowing from the flanks of Beinn Mhartainn, on Barra, meets the sea. I thought there must be a special word , for when a river meets the sea, but I could only find estuary, which just didn’t seem to capture the moment, so I’ve gone with riparian, which means located by the banks of a river , stream or other body of water. (Is this where ‘rip tides’ come from?)
I’m sure that this rich mahogany coloured water is the kind of thing that must enhance the flavour of whiskey? But I can only find references to the use of peat in the process of distilling whiskey, not the water that goes into it..
