Personally, I t...

Have you ever done the Old Largs Road (signposted "The Scenic Route"), starting off at Peat Road, Greenock, and coming out on the A78...

Re: Arran Podcasts

Hughie,

Firstly, I enjoyed the podcast interview. Secondly, I don't know Campbell but several people have asked me if I do. Apparently he does a very good job at the distillery and, as he says, meets thousands of people. Strangely, I've never visited the distillery :oops: .

Talking about smells what smells good or bad do the Threetowners remember. Two bad smells I remember are the terrible smell that came from the Shellmex and Also Dan Craig’s piggery.
