In my opinion
Off to Caol Ila than in the pouring rain, for a healthy nourishing breakfast consisting out of a dram or two. The old distillery lies a short walk  from Port Askaig down by the shore. In both cases of Bunnahabhain and Caol Ila, a lick of paint would do miracles. They look pretty run down >>>
