    I have vicarously returned to an island from before the Diaspora! Maybe a more literal return is in order? ;-\

    Gr8 tips! I spent a magic ten days here as a child and remember it well. `Islay Mist` has gotta be 1 of the best single malt whiskies in the world. Glad u didn`t write about the Hebredes Ferries like yr QE2 for Southampton page.
