Enjoy a holiday letting on Islay, the Queen of the Hebrides

Islay is a predominantly rural island, with even the main town of Bowmore being no larger than a village. Islay self-catering accommodations are therefore mainly cottages and larger detached properties out of town, many of which are very close to the coast. Real whisky fans will relish the opportunity to sample the nearby distilleries' products.
