Islay

Islay, which is about 25 miles long and 18.5 miles wide is served by Caledonian MacBrayne ferries from Kennacraig at least twice daily to either Port Askaig, close to Jura, or Port Ellen.

Islay has a gentle landscape of pastoral land and peaty moors, as well as some fine seashores, sandy beaches and a golf course. The Island's industries include whisky distilling of which there are eight distilleries. Islay is also a haven for bird watchers who can view the tens of thousands of rare geese and many varieties of ducks who find their winter quarters on the delightful shores of Lochindaal.

Bridgend is centrally situated with convenient shopping adjacent to Sornbank and the local hotel is a very short stroll . Situated ten miles from Port Ellen and seven from Port Askaig - the ferry terminals, the crossing takes approximately two hours from Kennacraig. Sornbank is a listed building, which has seen extensive upgrading and modernisation offering a high standard of accommodation, ideal for exploring the beautiful island of Islay.

Bowmore, is three miles from Bridgend and offers a larger choice of shops, the local swimming pool is situated here beside the Bowmore Distillery. The Distillery like most of the Islands Distilleries operates guided tours which are informative and most interesting to the whisky connoisseur.
