We stayed in a comfortable room behind a pub in Port Charlotte and ate two of our dinners there. One evening we stayed after our meal for a ceilidh. We went on a long hike to Machir Bay (gorgeous!) and had the beach to ourselves for a couple of hours. I recall getting a blister on my foot and not being able to walk all the way back to our room, so Danny went ahead and got the car and came back for me.
The Bruiachladdich distillery had recently reopened and we purchased a bottle, but unfortunately were too late for a tour.
The main town is Bowmore and has lots of shops as well as a round church.
