Islay

Islay has a place in the heart of every whisky lover, but it’s not just the world-class distilleries that draw visitors to this beautiful, fertile and fascinating inner Hebridean island. With miles of sandy beaches, outstanding Scottish wildlife and a rich Highland heritage, there’s so much to see and do on Islay. There’s plenty for kids to do too, and Islay is a great place for an active family holiday in Scotland.

Islay has a varied geology which in turn gives rise to a diverse range of natural habitats from moorland to peat bogs, forests to fertile grassland. While it’s mostly low lying the east coast rises quite steeply from the sea. It’s here that the highest point on the island is located, Beinn Bheigier, at 1,612 feet (491 m). Enjoy an outdoor adventure on Islay, with fantastic walking, cycling, golf, horse riding and kayaking on offer.
