Broadford,   together   with   nearby   Harrapool,   is   the   second   largest   settlement   on   the   Isle   of   Skye,   lying   on   the   SW corner of Broadford bay, on the A87 between Portree and the Skye Bridge, and overlooked by the eastern Cuillins. Everywhere   ought   to   have   some   historical   claim   to   fame,   and   Broadford   is   no   exception.   During   the   flight   of Bonnie   Prince   Charlie   in   1746,   he   was   helped   by   a   Captain   John   MacKinnon.   In   return,   the   Prince   gave   MacKinnon the   recipe   of   his   personal   liqueur. After   being   made   by   the   MacKinnons   on   Skye   for   their   personal   consumption   for over   a   century,   the   drink   went   public   in   the   Broadford   Inn   (now   the   Broadford   Hotel)   in   the   1870s,   and   the   name Drambuie   was   registered   as   a   trademark   in   1893.   Commercial   production   started   in   Edinburgh   in   1909   and   the company producing it achieved worldwide success under the chairmanship of Georgina MacKinnon. The    name,    incidentally,    comes    either    from    ‘an    dram    buidhe’    meaning    ‘the    yellow    drink’    or    ‘an    dram buidheach’   meaning   ‘the   drink   that   satisfies’.   Which   translation   you   prefer   depends   on   whether   you   are   swayed more   by   the   literal   way   in   which   things   were   very   commonly   named   after   their   colours   in   Gaelic,   or   by   the   desire to market a brand!
