    Favorite thing: Get high above the Sound of Islay anywhere near Port Askaig for spectacular, timeless views dominated by the Paps of Jura.

    Fondest memory: Dawn on the little jetty at Bruichladdich - the photo's cannot do justice to the awesome changes in light in an awesome setting.

    Favorite thing: There are seven active distilleries on Islay. Most of them offer tours. One, Ardbeg, even has a nice little café [conveniently near the shop!]
