After the Jamborette

Once the Jamborette was over, the Scouts each went home with a Scottish Scout for four days of home visitation. Pete also chose home visitation, Mike went off with his wife and Jerry and I rented a car and drove west from Blair Atholl to the Isle of Islay (pronounced "Eye-Lah"), then back to meet the group in Glasgow for the flight home. 

Here are a selection of pictures from our after-Jamborette touring. 

Bowmore Harbor on Islay

The Round Church stands at the head of the main street of Bowmore. It's said that the church was build round so that there would not be any corners for the devil to hide in.

Islay is generally flat - so much so that from Bowmore harbor on the west coast, you can see the Paps of Jura on the next island to the east. 

Bowmore Distillery - one of seven on Islay.
