Port Ellen

Posted 16 January 2018

This weekend gone, The Dramble headed over to the 3rd annual Harrow Whisky Festival, which takes place at the stunning Grim’s Dyke Hotel. The house was built between 1870 and 1872 for famous oil painter Frederick Goodall, but is best known for being the house that W.S Gilbert (of Gilbert and Sullivan) lived for the later part of his life – indeed, he died of a heart attack whilst giving a swimming lesson in the lake on the grounds of the house in 1923. Nowadays, the venue is a Best Western hotel, and well frequented by wedding parties and functions – it’s a lovely location (very close to Dramble HQ too) for a small, well organised whisky festival to kick of the year.
