Islay has eight single malt distilleries waiting to welcome you as well as fantastic wildlife scenery, history and food!


Islay is accessible by plane with a direct route from Glasgow, or by ferry. We suggest 2/3 days to visit some of the distilleries and explore the island by self-drive, or we can arrange escorted or chauffeur drive.

The south end of the island has Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg, and the extraordinary carving of the early Christian monument, the Kildalton Cross is also nearby. Bowmore and Bruichladdich are near the centre, with some wild beaches within easy reach.

Continue your discovery of Islay by way of Kilchoman Distillery, a farm distillery opened only in 2005, towards the western side of the island. Distilleries such as Caol Ila and Bunnahabhain lie to the northeast, and Jura Distillery is just a short ferry journey away.

Please note this is a suggested whisky tour and we can create and advise to your requirements.
