VisitScotland Information Centres

The Square, Bowmore, Bowmore, PA43 7JP

    Bowmore's Information Centre is located in the Square in the centre of the Island of Islay. Information is available to make your stay on the Island the best it can be.

    Bowmore is the capital village on the island of Islay which is the most southernly of the Inner Hebrides. Ferries, operated by Caledonian MacBrayne depart daily from Kennacraig on the Kintyre Penninsula.  The island is world famous for its eight working distilleries which are open for tours, our wildlife and of course our beautiful scenery where large flocks of Wild Geese flock to the Island every winter. Islay is not only home to Finlaggan, headquarters of the Lords of the Isles, we also have an 18 hole golf course with several beaches well worth a visit. Our local, friendly welcoming experts can help to book accommodation both on and off the island along with coach and ferry travel further afield.  We also offer a wide selection of gifts including local branded souvenirs and Harris Tweed bags and purses.
