Bowmore Distillery and Mactaggart Leisure Centre

Islay on Video written in stencil

Having mentioned the Mactaggart Leisure Centre yesterday in the On Islay Time entry I thought this would be a good time to show you a related video. One of the things a leisure centre needs, in particular one with a swimming pool on Islay, is heat and energy to warm up the water and heat the building. This video explain how this is solved together with Bowmore distillery:

I'm not sure if this is the only place in the world where a system like this is used, there probably won't be many other distilleries with a swimming pool next to it. In any case, I think this is a quite clever system, recycling heat that's generated anyway.
