It had its own farm distillery (a long time ago), now it provides water from a spring to Bruichladdich who named the Octomore whisky after it.

Picture of a coastal village at dawnTaken on a beautiful June morning at dawn, a view of Port Charlotte from the shore. The picture doesn’t fully do it justice, the light and mood was just amazing. It was just so calm and quiet, only a few birds calling as well as the sound of my own breathing and footsteps, nothing else.
