Adventure Coordinators Insider Tip:

You will spend one night at the The Glenora Inn and Distillery where Glen Breton Rare is produced in the traditional method using only three ingredients: barley, yeast and water.  Not far from here I spent a great evening listening to traditional music at The Red Shoe in Mabou.
