Travelling to Harris with a group of friends (who also happen to be whisky enthusiasts) a visit to Abhainn Dearg was a complete no brainer! We tried to visit in 2015 but were stumped by public transport so it's been a long time coming! It...More

Almost missed this place as no sign visible but it turned out Marko was giving their sign a new coat of paint so it had been taken down. Turned up on spec just as a group were about to do the tour so tagged along....More
