Islay - the land of the "Big Peat"                       

Jackie and Aidan took a very memorable trip to Scotland in early 2006.  One of the highlights was a three day trip to Islay on the west coast of Scotland. The purpose of the trip - to tour as many of the distilleries as possible!

The distilleries on the island include:





Caol Ila
