Extraordinary guide, what he didn't know wasn't worth a mention - some a bit too technical for me. Being local had some amazing stories about the eagles and the deer as well. As for the whisky - incredible, plenty of free samples too.

I recently visited the distillery not knowing about the history of distilling on the island, our very informative and passionate tour guide Jim made the experience, and was clearly passionate about his subject matter. I'd highly recommend the tour to anyone visiting the island- since...More

Yes - there was someone on our tour who did this, the guide made sure to fill them a miniature bottle to take with them at the end.
