The Abhainn Dearg (Red River) Distillery, at Carnish, Uig, Isle of Lewis, is the most westerly distillery in Scotland. Its owner and founder, Marko Tayburn (below), looks forward to an event - from 26 - 31 May - to celebrate Homecoming Scotland 2014. An item in the Stornoway Gazette features the local MSP, Dr Alasdair Allan, who is the the Scottish Government's Minister for Learning, Science and Scotland's Languages. That's not a job title to be pronounce faultlessly after a dram of malt whisky. The tongue twister - 'The Leith police dismisseth us' - is, however, marginally more difficult.
