Loch Uigeadail lies at the heart of the ancient island of Islay. As you hike through the wilderness and ruins of this enigmatic land, the inspiration for the complexity of the whisky it inspired becomes clear. After miles of craggy hills and swampy valleys you arrive at the shores of the loch just in time to enjoy a peaty glass of Ardbeg. Take a moment as you imbibe to remember that the waters of the loch before you are the only source for the distillery far below. Slàinte!
