Leave the mainland stresses and strains behind. Although off the beaten track Islay is easy to get to, with daily ferry crossings and flights (from Glasgow International Airport).

Islay is renowned for its wildlife and whisky. The Old Schoolroom is the perfect place to unwind after a hard day relaxing! Barn owls and Hen Harriers hunt across the back of The Old Schoolroom, and at the other end of the scale wrens are frequent visitors too! Deer can often be seen in the garden and surrounding fields. Every year the swallows return to raise their young. Night time is filled with the acrobatic antics of the bats!
Enjoy the slower pace of life and experience the unique atmosphere of Islay.
