The staff is amazingly friendly. We missed the tour because wet walked in the rain and it took longer than expected. The whiskey was vey good. Less Smokey than others. If you're from USA you'll probably relate it more to our whiskeys.

Flybe is the plane company that services Islay. It really depends on the flight times available. You'll probably have to arrive one day and leave the next.
