Welcome to Isle of Islay & Kintyre
Islay is the southernmost of the Inner Hebrides islands, off the west coast of Scotland. Along with the neighbouring island of Jura, it’s known for its whisky. Numerous distilleries produce the island’s characteristically peaty single malts. In the northeast, 2 islands on Loch Finlaggan are dotted with the remains of an ancient settlement, including a prehistoric fort and medieval tombstones.
Kintyre peninsula is an area rich with history and superb, empty beaches just waiting to be discovered. Intrepid drivers can’t resist a trip to the southern tip, the Mull of Kintyre, made world-famous by Sir Paul McCartney. Then hop on another ferry to the Hebridean Isle of Islay, for more striking scenery, wildlife, history and whisky galore.
