Favorite thing: Friendly people, stunning scenery, time stood still, interesting wildlife, great whisky, stunning bays and beaches, oh and did i mention friendly people? Islay isn't your one time destination. Once on Islay makes sure you will be back!
Get high above the Sound of Islay anywhere near Port Askaig for spectacular, timeless views dominated by the Paps of Jura.
Fondest memory: Dawn on the little jetty at Bruichladdich - the photo's cannot do justice to the awesome changes in light in an awesome setting.
The wild land, the sea and the remains of ancient cultures. That's several!
Fondest memory: The remnants of ancient cultures such as this chambered cairn burial site near Port Charlotte on Loch Indaal.
There are seven active distilleries on Islay. Most of them offer tours. One, Ardbeg, even has a nice little café [conveniently near the shop!]
Coming soon: pictures of our tour of Laphroaig :)
