Another year has passed and what a great one it was, and a busy one too. Running the Islay Info website and Islay blog from Islay is so much better than before we lived here and probably as a result the number of followers on Facebook and Twitter have increased dramatically over the last year. It's nice and very rewarding to share the ever changing scenery of Islay online with folk from all over the world. Sometimes it's quite a challenge as Webdesign and IT work keeps me very busy as well as the recently started picture sales. That's also the reason that it's sometimes hard to keep the blog updated as much as I would like. Never thought life on Islay could be that busy!
Anyway, let's go back to the reason of this post. We want to wish everyone a Very Happy New Year and we thank you all for the kind emails as well as comments on our Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus pages, they are much appreciated. This year is going to be an exciting one as there are quite a few interesting things happening on Islay such as the Ferry Tender, the start of construction of Islay's ninth distillery at Gartbreck, the opening of Islay House Hotel and the start of the construction of the Machrie Hotel, just to name a few. We will try to keep you up to date on all of this and much more. Have a great 2016!
