Looking at that picture i think they may be struggling to get it open for the Festival .
Maybe even for the summer .
Anyone heard if anythings happened with the White Hart since the collapse of the last sale ?
Hello. I am a Renfrew boy, long domiciled in the south of England. It is only recently that I discovered that my great- grandmother was from Islay. This has led me to do some researching and I have now 'discovered' your lovely island. During the past 6 months I have immersed myself in the history of the island, its people and their lives in the past century to try and find out more about great-grannies past. Details are scarce, but I am looking forward to visiting the Islay Museum for more help. I am so looking forward to visiting the island from 20th June and I will be staying near Port Charlotte and doing a wee bit of hiking, weather permitting. Thank you for a most interesting, informative and entertaining website.
Hi Robert. First of all thanks for the kind words re the website and second of all welcome to my wee Islay forum. Feel free to post whatever you think is appropriate.
If you're interested in hiking/walking I can advice the new walks guide from the marketing group. It's a wee booklet with a lot of interesting walks, available from several shops on the island and the Tourist Information Office in Bowmore.
The Maggie is one of Ealing studios lesser known comedies. A wily old skipper of a Western Isles 'Puffer' and his motley crew lead all who come into contact with them a fine old time! Many scenes on Islay!
