Some Quick Islay Snippets

Can't really make up my mind what to blog about tonight. So how about I blog about a variety of Islay things? Bits and pieces I've come across recently. That way there might be something for everyone with an interest in Islay. So here we go:

Every weekend when I write the Islay Blogging Roundup I link to the Scottish Roundup, which is usually also published on the Sunday. The Sunday edition is mainly about politics, but every few weeks there's a ‘non-political roundup’. In the latest edition Robert Burns and twice-baked potatoes two Islay blogs and the Islay twitterers receive a mention.

I have to link this blind as for some reason I can't seem to get the video to work on either of my laptops, but Islay should receive a few mentions in Smokin' Scotch.

Ron has dug out a rather strange video of a flight over Islay: 32 A h-uile mionaid den turas itealain as giorra. I must admit I was struggling to watch it, the perspective is a bit weird. (See also the entry on Ron's blog, Islay from a selfmade aeroplane, and check the entry for the (now closed) FilmG award)

At the Black Bottle Burns competition you can win a luxury trip for 2 to Islay, including a personal guided tour of Bunnahabhain distillery.

I think that's enough Islay snippets for today, hope you found them interesting. Good night!
