The geological makeup of Islay, the southernmost island of the Inner Hebrides, has a complexity that is reflected in the variety of scenery to be found there. Boulder-strewn hills, peat moors, woods, farmland, inland lochs, sea lochs, dramatic coastal cliffs and amazing beaches makes Islay a fascinating place to explore. In turn each of these natural environments supports a wonderful array of wild life.
Apart from the beauty of the landscape there exist a number of other attractions for the visitor. Islay is famous for its whisky having no less than eight distilleries most with organised tours and a visitor’s centre. Many sites of historical interest await your discovery, information of which plus much more can be found at The Museum of Islay Life. You can also visit a working woollen mill, call on local potters and browse various craft shops; alternatively it is possible for you to go horse riding or sea fishing.
Furthermore there are several hotels and restaurants offering fine food and refreshment and if you have time after all these activities you can always pop over to the neighbouring islands of Jura and Colonsay which are only a short ferry trip away.
