Islay Whisky Festival

Postby Rainmaker » Fri Dec 08, 2017 8:11 pm

Some members have been asking if we were going to this event. A bit early with post but camping +ferries will need to be booked early. The festival is on from the 25th May until 2nd June if you fancy staying longer than just a weekend. The campsite is at Port Mor Centre next to Port Charlotte PA48 7UE. and can be booked direct on Tel: 01496 850441 or email the warden James McEachern warden@islandofislay.co.uk Ferry Timetables and prices are on Caledonian MacBrayne website.

Oh boy, do enjoy if you go.
In '96 we stayed an Bunnahabien for a week and toured all the distilleries.
A grand time.
I have a bottle of Laphroaig ready for Christmas.
Lil'Breva and a Bellagio.

That's the camp site and the ferry booked for me and Rogan.
We are going out on the 15.30 Ferry on the Friday and back on the 9.45 on the Monday.

Has anyone else booked up yet?

If you do intend to go it is worth booking early as the ferries can be busy with the festival being on then you won't be disappointed.
