We are delighted to be able to start welcoming back visitors and have had to make some temporary adjustments to our operations in order to do so safely. Measures have been put in place to allow for physical distancing and limiting visitor capacity. You may also find that some of our supplementary services are limited for the time being however our team are excited to be back offering information and inspiration to help you make the most of your visit. Bowmore's iCentre 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.
