This morning, I collected guests from central Glasgow and embarked on a tour as follows:

First to Luss, a village on the banks of Loch Lomond. During this part of the day we encountered mist and poor visibility.

Next, we stopped at Auchindrain, a historic township about 20 minutes from Inveraray. This former Highland community is now a museum displaying living conditions and way of life typical of rural Scotland up to the early 20th century.

The crossing to Islay took about 2 hours, in brilliant sinshine.. We arrived Port Askaig about 5.15pm and then drove for about 20 mins to our destination of Bowmore where we checked into our lodgings.

Tomorrow, we commence tours of whisky distilleries
