Friday Islay Picture #105 - Finlaggan Visitor Centre Refurbishment

Friday Islay Picture in stencil

Friday evening, I've had my first wee dram of Islay Single Malt (a Laphroaig 10yo), now it's time to post this week's Friday Islay picture. This week I decided to post a topical picture with a link to a news item from Islay. The picture is from last summer, it shows refurbishment and extension work being carried out at the Finlaggan visitor centre:

The work has since been completed as a video clip at the BBC titled New access to Lord of the Isles shows. It provides an overview about Finlaggan and provides a few impressions of the refurbished and expanded visitor centre. The extended visitor centre will officially be opened tomorrow, Saturday, 16/May/2009 at 14:30 with archaeologist Dr David Caldwell and historian Dr Fiona Watson in attendance. Later there will be a celebration ceilidh at Ballygrant Hall (Saturday, 16/May, 19:30).

That's all I have for this evening. As usual I'll post the larger version on the Islay Pictures photoblog tomorrow morning. Have a great weekend!
