Tobermory distillery is a Scotch whisky distillery founded as Ledaig distillery in 1798 by John Sinclair. The current buildings were constructed during that first period of occupation, and were licensed in 1823. It was acquired by John Hopkins & Co in 1890, and by Distillers Company in 1916 before closing in 1930 following a drop in the demand for whisky due to ten years of prohibition in the United States. The only distillery on Mull, it is currently owned by Burn Stewart Distillers, a subsidiary of Distell Group Limited of South Africa. Its main product, Tobermory single malt, is used in the blends Scottish Leader and Black Bottle.

Delightful tiny distillery shop. Treated to tasters of their standard whiskey and gin when browsing making purchasing their miniatures an easy choice for those passing through. Friendly staff too.

Fantastic tasting experience in a delightful little distillery. All of the staff were exceptionally friendly and fun offering a tasting with great value for money. Would recommend to anyone interested in whisky hoping to try the Tobermory or Ledaig malt!

I enjoyed a terrific personal tasting session in the vaults. Dianna the guide was extremely knowledgeable and helped me understand and describe the flavours. It was wonderful to taste 3 very expensive whiskies i would not have normally purchased.

Hi, We bought a whisky and a Gin from shop, I have spent £98,but I am concerned about the customer services that I have received. The lady behind the counter wasn't on a good mode to serve! Behind the mask, she couldn't understand a word and after you try to move your lips more to show your speech , she keeps telling you put your mask on properly please! No smile or positivity. I didn't get any nice feeling shopping on shop. Thanks for reading.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
