    After a break for coffee and Coke in the hotel bar, we were ready and waiting for Carol to pick us up for the ride to Ardbeg Distillery.

I turn right a few miles south of the county council headquarters at Lochgilphead, down a single track road which follows the line of the land forms - glaciers grinding their way southwest carved out these valleys 13,000 years ago.
