Famed for its world-renowned distilleries and with eight to choose from including the famous Laphroaig, whisky enthusiasts will not be disappointed. But that’s not all. Islay offers a rich and colourful landscape with sandy beaches, towering cliffs, nature reserves and a huge variety of wildlife, making it the perfect place for a relaxing break away. From the shoreline you might catch sight of seals, dolphins, buzzards or even an eagle, or, you can just sit back and take in the spectacular views all around.

Sail to Port Ellen or Port Askaig on Islay from Kennacraig on Kintyre.
