Islay must be even more popular this year. We tried to book our usual ferry 4 weeks ago (11 weeks before travel time) and it's fully booked. We've had to book for the 9.45 boat which means leaving home at 4.00am! the return ferry we usually get was also fully booked so we're getting the later one - that means staying on Islay for an extra SIX hours - oh the hardship!!!!!
The weather boffins are forecasting a good summer (we'll wait and see!) so hopefully the sun will shine on us.
Did I say seven weeks? Make that six weeks, six days and 20 hours!
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!
