Visit the home of Bowmore

Islay may be a little off the beaten track, but it's well worth a visit.

With its breathtaking scenery, spectacular wildlife, welcoming locals (known as Ileachs) and no fewer than eight distilleries, Islay is a place unlike any other and a mecca for whisky lovers.

Bowmore itself is home to almost one third of the island's population. Besides the distillery, it's known for its whitewashed houses, tiny, stone-built harbour and pier, and the iconic Bowmore Round Church, which sits at the top of Main Street, commanding impressive views over the village, Loch Indaal and beyond.
