Islay is an ideal place to relax with beautiful sandy beaches, towering cliffs, birdlife and eight whisky distilleries. The hostel has wonderful sea views and good facilities and is popular with families, cyclists, walkers and independent travellers.

Along with its outstanding natural beauty Islay is also famed for its diverse and plentiful wildlife, and is home to two RSPB nature reserves. With its excellent accommodation and facilities, the hostel (and the attached Wildlife Centre) is an ideal base from which to explore all that Islay has to offer - along with visits to neighbouring wild Jura.
