Photos or videos of Islay WANTED

Got the following email in a while ago, can anyone help?
I wonder if you could help me. I'm contacting you on behalf of a whisky distillery on Islay, Scotland, called Ardbeg. We are trying to find images/video or documentary evidence of motorcycles on Islay, from vintage to classics - owners or road trips etc.

As an amateur genealogist, quite a bit of information I found came from local historical societies.

Perhaps there may be one on Islay or the local county that Islay comes under.

Also a request in the local newspapers may turn something up.

It's worth a try.

Might be worth pointing them towards Tom Morton on Radio Scotland. He filmed riding on Islay on his MZ outfit for the 'Spirit of Adventure' television series.

Good thinking, boys.

Hi Jackie, Frank and I toured Islay in 2005 on a '56 Dommi and a '37 Inter. I will have a look for the photos. How can I send them to you ?

Thanks guys...apparently the deadline is a bit tight so no time for papers and the bike press - hence the GBC Blog! Gordon, first thing to do is send me an email to cubbiescounties AT and I'll put you in touch with the guy who made the request. Don't forget to change the AT to @ and remove the spaces!
