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 seven distilleries all within easy reach, the Lochside is a good base for anyone drawn to the island by the unique flavours of its peaty nectar.

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