Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The Isle of Islay is the southernmost island of the Inner Southern Hebrides of Scotland and lies in Argyll and Bute. The Isle of Jura, the Kintyre peninsula and Northern Ireland are Islay's neighbours.

Islay's climate benefits from the warm Gulf Stream, bringing cool winters with little frost or snow and mild summers. The driest, most pleasant weather, on average, is often from April to July when the sun makes the most hours and rainfall is less than in most other months. November to February are the wettest and windiest months with crisp winter days and snowfall, especially on higher grounds.

With 8 working whisky distilleries, the stunning scenery and amazing wildlife Islay is a fantastic holiday destination.

Port Ellen

There are many things to see and do besides visiting the distilleries and enjoying the scenery and wildlife. Golf, cycling, fishing, horseriding and hillwalking are only a few of many possible activities. Several annual festivals on the island attract many visitors, especially the Islay Festival of Malt and Music, which is held in May. Other festivals are the Islay Jazz Festival, the Rugby Festival and the Cantilena festival.

Islay offers many wonderful and quiet sandy beaches all around the island. The Atlantic west coast of Islay is particularly beautiful because of stunning bays at Machir, Saligo and Sanaigmore. Saligo Bay is a must to enjoy one of the most impressive sunsets in Scotland. Some even say that Saligo Bay offers the most beautiful light in Scotland. Interesting and beautiful villages like historic Port Charlotte, Bowmore with its Round Church, Port Ellen and Portnahaven will make your stay complete. Also not to be missed is the Museum of Islay Life where the visitor gets a good impression of Island life in earlier and historic times.
