Port Charlotte

portcharlotte2 [1600x1200]Port charlotte is an old fihser port on Islay with an old, not working Whisky distillery. The houses are very nice, mostly painted white with coloured frames. The people are very kind ( I stayed in the Distillery House B&B owned by Graham and Marie-Ann, they explained me a lot about theculture and living conditions on Islay).

A speciality is Whisky marmalade with a hint of Scotch Peat! Delicate!

And there’s nothing better than the traditional live music:

Entering the small town of Bowmore (rather a village) on Islay. The distillery offers fine Single Malt Whisky, the coast and landscape is fascinating for hiking and fishing.

Interesting modern music:
