Little did we know that in later years we would stop at the cottage on the left hand side of the Port Charlotte photo !
2003 was our last stay in the Lochside hotel , after this summer we went self catering .

Mel fights her way through the crowds on the Big Strand…..
2004 was a special year for us , it was our 10th Wedding Anniversary and we spent it on Islay at the Old School in Ardbeg .
Stopping just up the road from the distillery meant we spent a lot of time in the Old Kiln . Which also meant we picked up the special release 1990 for the Japanese market…… We also did our first walk on Islay , through Bridgend Woods . It was a great stay on Islay , the weather was gorgeous and we had a great wedding anniversary !
