Islay Whisky Bespoke Private Tours
Searching for the soul of Scotland will inevitably bring you to whisky at one point adding to this salt, sea and peat Islay represents the deepest of all Scottish Spirit. This is a four-day exemplary tour of Islay
The isle of Islay is only approximately 25 miles long but hosts nine distilleries. Besides the exquisite booze the isle is also a natural beauty spot and even offers golf course for those who require whisky & golf.

If you find nine whisky distilleries too overwhelming in two days, add a day or leave some out. Our tours are all bespoke so you can get us to create exactly what you would like and since we are a small group you can make amendments on the day if for instance the weather changes.
We need to book accommodation, ferries and depending on the seasons distilleries too.
