Flowers and fishing boats, heritage and history – Islay is rich in things to do and see all year round.

With Bowmore virtually next door and Islay’s other distilleries all within easy reach, the Lochside is the perfect base for anyone looking to visit the island’s distilleries and everything else the beautiful Isle of Islay has to offer.

The hotel is 100m from Bowmore Distillery and its state-of-the-art visitor centre, the perfect place to start getting to grips with what makes Islay single malt singularly special.
