Rummaging through old photographs i found some that may (or may not) be of interest from early visits to Islay .
The first two small but perfectly formed offerings are from our very first visit in 1999 i think , i must have the originals of these somewhere……. Taken on a lovely summer day at the Back of the Lochside hotel , it was a great place to sit with a dram looking over Loch Indaal taking in the Rays !
Love the Aerosmith Tour T-shirt !
On to 2000 , this time a few views around Islay……
