Islay-A Whisky Lover’s Paradise

Islay is a whisky lover’s paradise. With 9, soon to be 10 and possibly 11 distilleries it offers a grand range of whiskey to suit all tastes. There are beautiful beaches with white sand and powerful rollers coming in from the Atlantic which is mesmerising to watch. A room with a beach view is the best. add in a roaring fire and a dram and it’s pretty close to heaven. The locals are very friendly and helpful and an easy evening can be enjoyed with them in the couthy Ardview pub in Port Ellen.
The wild life is awesome with wild goats grazing on the beaches, deer, otters, eagles soaring above and so many other varieties of birds to spot.
A delightful island that is well worth a visit to soak in the vibe of this Inner Hebriedean island.
