Magnificent scenery and welcoming B&Bs in Scotland

Described as the Queen of the Hebrides, the Isle of Islay is one of the jewels in Scotland’s crown.  Part of the Southern Hebrides, it is inhabited by less than 4000 people, but that does not stop it from being home to eight working whisky distilleries and some of the most spectacular scenery Scotland has to offer.

From the beautiful wildlife to the warm and welcoming hospitality of its inhabitants, it is perhaps no wonder that the Isle of Islay has a reputation as a five star holiday destination that keeps visitors returning time and again.

Such warmth is evident at the likes of Loch Gorm House, one of Scotland’s finest B&Bs with views across the bay, and a character brought to life by the personal and attention of owner Fiona Doyle.  Equally, Glenegedale House enjoys beautiful gardens and views that stretch over the Mull of Oa to the Atlantic beyond, all of which can be enjoyed as you tuck into the plentiful supply of freshly baked cakes and absorb the local knowledge of owners Graeme and Emma Clark.

While the temptation is certainly to sit back with a dram of whisky and take in the view all day, the island also offers a wealth of things to do and see.  Walks on the beautiful beaches, seafaring adventures and ferry journeys for those keen on holidays with outdoor pursuits, a wealth of seasonal festivals that celebrate the region’s food, drink and culture, and then there are also day trips to other nearby islands.

For those interested in poetry and prose, and romantic escape to the Isle of Islay could not be complete without a jaunt to the Isle of Jura as well.  The beautifully untamed island is one of the wildest places in Scotland, complete with soaring mountains and a population of 5000 wild deer that completely outstrips the human population of 200.  Jura is famed as the one-time home of George Orwell, who wrote 1984 in the tranquil environment – perhaps you will be inspired too?
