One day & two nights on Islay - where to stay?

Jump to last reply

As part of our driving trip around Scotland this summer, we're going to spend one day and two nights on Islay. We plan to take the Wednesday ferry from Oban to Port Askaig, spend Thursday sampling the fares of as many distilleries as we can handle, and then leave on the morning ferry from Port Ellen.

Where should we stay to make the most of our time? I'm hoping we could stay somewhere that would give us a good taste of the island, but that would also position us well logistically-speaking, since our time is so short.

I'd love any recommendations for things to do or places to see, too! I know one day on Islay is nowhere near enough, but sadly, that's all we can manage. Thanks for your help!
