South Whisky Island Hopping Adventure

South Island Hopping Day Adventure

South Whisky Island Hopping Adventure

Jump aboard on this South Whisky Island Hopping Adventure, bound for Islay - the Queen of the Hebrides. Create your own Island Hopping itinerary, and work up a thirst for the water of life, by taking the ferry to Arran, before traveling to Kintyre, and then Islay.

Our Island Hopping Adventure ticket allows you to travel once, in either direction, between: 

Ardrossan - Brodick (Arran)

Lochranza (Arran) - Claonaig (Kintyre)

Kennacraig (Kintyre) - Islay

Islay - Kennacraig.

The Isle of Arran in the Firth of Clyde boasts its own distillery at Lochranza, at the northern tip of the Island. Over on the Kintyre peninsula, Campbeltown was once a whisky smuggling centre.  Now it's home to Springbank, the oldest independent, family-owned distillery in the country. From there, the next stop is Islay - also known as the Whisky Isle, which this year will boast no fewer than nine working distilleries.

Advance booking is essential for this trip.
