Immerse yourself in Islay, Jura and Colonsay

From achingly beautiful beaches to toe-tapping nights in the pub, the islands of Islay, Jura, and Colonsay offer a true taste of the Hebrides. Islay is famed for its smoky whiskies, overwintering geese, and miles of sandy beaches. Neighbouring Jura is mountainous and wild, with a rugged and remote appeal. 

The island’s distinctive peaks, the Paps of Jura, offer fantastic hillwalking, and intrepid hikers can explore the uninhabited west coast. Tiny Colonsay is a gem of an island and home to an array of wildlife. Kiloran Bay must be one of the most perfect sandy beaches in the whole of Argyll & the Isles.
