Islands single malt Scotch whisky

This long-extinct distillery stood at Scarinish Farm in the coastal village of Scarinish, about three miles from the present day site of Tiree airport on the B8065 road.

Just north of there is the ferry terminal where there are daily services from Oban via the island of Coll. The village also has a hotel and museum. North-east from Scarinish was another short-lived and now lost distillery, Kirkipol.
