Close readers of A Kilchoan Diary will have appreciated that, from the lack of immediacy in the entries over the last three weeks, we have been away from West Ardnamurchan checking up on how the rest of the world has been getting on. Travelling is always a mixed pleasure, particularly when it includes passing through the increasingly wretched airport security checks, but we had a particularly good trip since it included seeing our son who has settled in Canada.
Arriving home in a place like this, where every change is important, involves catching up with what has happened in our absence. As we passed through Glenmore, we stopped to inspect progress on our distillery, being built by Adelphi Distillery - check their website here to see what is planned. It's 'ours' because Adelphi has kindly given the community a share in it, so we look forward very much to the first drops being distilled.
It's good to be home. Many thanks to Tom Bryson, who keeps a blog at Craigard Croft, for taking care of the Diary for the last few weeks.
