Dunvalanree in Carradale, a founding member of The Seafood Trail, provides meals cooked with care and passion. Local produce is a feature at this friendly, family-run establishment which serves food freshly cooked to order.
Follow your nose along the famous road from Port Ellen and you will eventually come to the most welcoming distillery on the island. Ardbeg's white-washed walls can be found nestling in a rocky cove on Islay's southern tip.
Market is organised by the local producers and has become a very important focal point for the community to gather each month making it well worth a visit for the tourist who will be made to feel very welcome.
Caol Ila (pronounced 'cull-eela') is situated on the north eastern shores of Islay, with magnificent views across the Sound of Islay to the spectacular Paps of Jura. Watch the distillers at work, tending the six copper stills.
Take a tour of the distillery, see our distillers at work and view the unusual pear shaped stills. Peated malt, slow distillation and long maturation together ensure Lagavulin develops a complex, rich, peaty character.
