Gruinart Woods & more Whisky

Distance: 1.5km; with Lynsey & Isabel
See route in new window

With the weather being a mixture of sunshine and showers, we went for a morning stroll on the Gruinart woodland trail.  There were views over Loch Gruinart from the viewpoint near the start of the walk.  The woods were filled with a carpet of bluebells and there was also plenty of gorse in flower.  We arrived back at the car shortly before midday and headed to Islay's newest distillery, Kilchoman, for lunch.

We spent the afternoon at various places on the shores of Loch Indaal, including visits to Bruichladdich and Bowmore distilleries and there were good views of the Paps of Jura from several different vantage points.
