Islay + Jura

Took a lovely trip to Islay and Jura week before last with 2 charming couples from Virginia. I was working for About Argyll and our programme included a couple of distillery visits along with an exploration of these beautiful islands. The sun shone, though the wind was pretty cold, and we managed to tackle some coastal walks as well as getting up close and personal with the Paps of Jura just 3 days before the annual hill race. Finlaggan, ancient seat of the Lord of the Isles, is always a special place to visit and did not disappoint this time either - there is certainly a real sense of history here.
My companions were i charmed by the islands and the people - I suspect they will return to the Hebrides before long.
