Fantastic ruins of a church location would been amazing apart from the holiday cottages right by it.
We started a very pleasant walk from here. The remains of the church were interesting, as was the graveyard. Beautiful setting. It’s also close to Kilchoman Distillery, if whisky is your thing!

The distillery tour was great. The guide was very knowledgeable and she was able to explain the process with detailed information. There's a restaurant where you can have lunch but it can be quite packed on lunch hour. If you're going here in the morning for a tour, I may suggest making an order for food and book a table for lunch beforehand. The gift shop offers quite a lot of their whisky in mini bottles which are great for souvenirs.
First up - THEY CHARGED ME FOR TWO MINUTE SAMPLES EVEN THOUGH I BOUGHT A £75 BOTTLE OF WHISKY! Absolutely awful form. As a new distillery, their whiskies are young and don't have that classic Islay taste or feel yet, although that's likely to come. They do have a cafe, although not having eaten there I can't comment further than that. The tours may be good, and as a 'farm distillery' they conduct much of the process on site which is nice, but the charge for the few millilitres I tasted left an awfully sour taste in my mouth.
