Islay ferry/car rental

Hi everyone. I'm planning a trip to Scotland. Our first stop is Isle of Islay, we will be flying in. I was hoping to take the ferry back to the mainland which if I'm not mistaken, goes from Islay to Kennacraig. From there, we wanted to rent a car and continue our tour of Scotland but I'm not finding any car rentals in the area. Is this possible? Can anyone help? Thanks!

>>Is this possible?<<

Nope. You'd have to either rent at a major location on the mainland like GLA and drive to Islay and back OR fly off the island and rent.

Even if there was a local firm that would rent you a car -- it wouldn't allow one-way rentals.

oh to clarify >>rent at a major location on the mainland like GLA and drive to Islay and back<< I didn't mean you'd have to drive back to GLA, I mean back to the mainland . . . you could drop it at a number of places.

But basically - if you fly to Islay -- you really need to fly out.

Thank you for the info. So would the nearest car rental be in Glasgow, do you think?
