All smiles as Prince Charles vis­its Is­lay

The Oban Times - - Review -

PRINCE Charles made an ap­pear­ance in The Oban Times in July, af­ter he vis­ited Is­lay on June 26.

De­spite heavy rain­fall, spir­its weren’t damp­ened at two Is­lay dis­til­leries, as the prince paid a spe­cial visit to com­mem­o­rate 200 years of whisky pro­duc­tion at the sites.

Us­ing his of­fi­cial Scot­tish ti­tles of Duke of Rothe­say and Lord of the Isles, he vis­ited Ard­beg and Laphroaig dis­til­leries. The heir to the throne’s third en­gage­ment was a trip to the Fin­lag­gan vis­i­tor cen­tre and burial site, by which time the sun had come out al­low­ing Prince Charles the chance to ditch his um­brella and take in the stun­ning Is­lay scenery and give the cen­tre the royal seal of ap­proval.
