First Run

First run out this year to my favourite island - Islay.
Left Red Bay in thickish fog and arrived in Port Ellen in glorious sunshine and quite a bit warmer.
Must be the straightest road in Scotland (and no steep inclines).

Port Ellen to Bowmore - YouTube.

First time in Bowmore. Very very nice place. "THE BOSS" recomended the Lochside. So didn't have a choice. Very friendly staff and good chowder. Some nice ales and good choice of malts.
Harbour Inn looks nice but didn't have time to visit.
Further investigation required.

I swear to God, he's a walking version of the Good Pub Guide. Usually right too, he must do a LOT of research. Some of the background stories are hair raising!

Thanks Billy.
Still hope to get off soon to Tayvallich. There looks a nice B&B on the other side of the bay.
