We recently had a fantastic holiday on Islay, in the Hebredes. We stayed in a B&B called The Old Excise House which is next door to Laphroaig distillery, and also in walking distance to the Lagavulin and Ardbeg distilleries. It was a brilliant holiday, and The Old Excise House is probably the best accommodation I have ever stayed in.

It was totally worth a days driving up from Cambridge, the scenery gets better and better as you go, and when you get past Glasgow it gets really good. So we're already making plans to go back.
