getting myself over to Islay for the first time at the end of September. We're flying from Glasgow and will be there for two or three nights.
I'm looking for suggestions on where to stay
- nothing remote, as we won't have a car. I've read that Bowmore is a good choice, and it's home to my favourite Islay whisky
My Dad would like breakfast, and would prefer somewhere that isn't too 'Auntie Beanie' (such a diva!).
We're also hoping to take a day tour
around the island, rather than just relying on public transport to explore. Does anyone know of anything like this? I've seen that the local taxi companies do bespoke tours, but haven't found much else.
Aside from the obvious whisky-inspired sightseeing, any other must-sees
that I should add to my list are most welcome.
