We didn't have time to visit this distillery, but stopped in for a quick dram. The boy behind the bar was very friendly and helpful, and the visitor centre is fantastic! Definitely worth a stop even if it's only for 5 mins

Perhaps unsurprisingly, on Islay the memories of the distillery visits are apt to run one into another! I do remember thast, having bought a bottle, the non-drinking driver was given a minature to take away & try later.

Flybe is the plane company that services Islay. It really depends on the flight times available. You'll probably have to arrive one day and leave the next.
