With historic distilleries, coastal scenery and fascinating wildlife to fill your trip with, the only difficult thing to plan for your island escape is what Islay accommodation to stay in.
But where to rest your head? Luckily, Islay has plenty of choice, with a great variety of serviced and self catering accommodation across the island, including welcoming family-run B&Bs and guesthouses, charming traditional hotels and cosy cottages. There's also loads of ways to experience camping in Islay, including glamping pods and luxury eco-dwellings. And with nine distilleries, there's no better way to end a busy day on the island than with a relaxing whisky before you hit the hay - and you can even stay in a history distillery cottage at either Bowmore Disillery or Ardbeg Distillery! For advice on where to stay once you're on the island, be sure to visit the Bowmore iCentre.
