... the worlds oldest and most prolific producers of whisky. They have evidence to suggest that distilling was going on as early as the 15th century on the site. (it would have been in secret then as it was illegal). The current entity was built in the late 1800s.

Travelled through many of the places Dad used to speak about today, Fort William, Strachur, Inverarry, Bute and into Dunon to stay with cousin David and his wife Elaine. Cousin Janice here also so great to catch up. Few drinks to be had tonight and a home cooked ...

The older the whisky gets the smoother it is! The shop was selling a 50 year old bottle for ...

I have to say, what a fun day it was, it seemed appropriate to watch the strong men throw the hammer and toss the caber in the drizzle and mist. As well as strong men and women, there was also highland dancing, pipe bands, traditional music, track and field events and even an event where ...

We watched the men toss the cabers which are long sections of tree trunks that have had the bark stripped off. The object is to carry the caber by the small end balancing it for a certain distance (maybe 25 feet or so), then toss it so that it flips over and lands pointing away from the thrower. They are judged on ...
