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.
