ABOUT ISLAY,
The ‘Queen of the Hebrides’ is a beautiful tranquil island situated off the west coast of Scotland and enjoys a milder climate due to the effects of the gulf stream. Palm trees and beautiful flowering gorse and Rhododendrons, line the road sides.
Islay has much to offer everyone including Nine whisky distilleries at Ardbeg, Bowmore, Bunnahabhain, Bruichladdich, Caol Ila, Kilchoman, Lagavulin, Laphroaig and on the nearby Isle of Jura- All of which offer tours and a tasting. A tenth is starting into construction in 2016
