Laphroaig distillery from just outside the "peat fire"277 viewsA rather dreich (dreary) day. We were touring the distillery and I stepped outside for a moment.
This information is from Wiki: "The meaning of the toponym is unknown but a commonly suggested derivation implies the elements "lag" (Gaelic: hollow), "breid" (Norse: broad) and "vik" (Norse: bay), implying an original Gaelic form something like "Lag Bhròdhaig" (the hollow of Broadbay). The name may be related to a placename on the east coast of Islay, "Pròaig", again suggested as meaning "broad bay"."
