Arran Distillery – Malt and Music Festival 2012

It is late afternoon on Friday 29th June 2012 and Jim is heading to the ferry from Ardrossan to Brodick to enjoy a couple of days on the wonderful Island of Arran and to be at the Arran Malt and Music Festival.

Jim and Jacqueline, while waiting for the ferry, were a little worried because the wind was howling and the rain was torrential (another typical Scottish summers day) and we wondered what awaited us on the Saturday at the Arran Festival, the weather forecast was certainly not favourable, albeit it was not our first visit to this distillery, it was our first to the Festival and we had no intention of missing it.

Last Tuesday morning I was heading to the highland town of Newtonmore (in the snow) to participate in a jam packed three day open canoe and whisky trip down the River Spey. There were also a few other invited guests on the way, MissWhisky, Dr Andrew Forrester and Fiona Outdoors.
