Getting to Islay is easier than you might think; for those short on time, we recommend flying. 45-minute direct flights depart twice daily from Glasgow year-round.  For those with a bit more time on their hands we recommend taking the ferry from Kennacraig, it might take a little longer but the beautifully scenic drive and the idyllic ferry journey give you a full appreciation of Islay life.

Once you’re on Islay do not miss the opportunity to experience Kilchoman, the only distillery on Islay where you can see, touch, smell and taste every part of the whisky-making process, from barley to bottling.  Head west from Bridgend and follow signposts to Kilchoman.  We’re five miles off the main road, watch out for the sheep on the single track road!
