History of Islay
The island has a rich and fascinating history. Celts were the first major settlers but, Islay has been inhabited since at least 8000 BC. The island is a treasure trove of historical artefacts, from standing stones and Celtic crosses to graves and ruins to explore. The island’s history is there for all to see in the Museum of Islay Life in Port Charlotte. The museum is open Monday to Friday and is the perfect place to learn how Islay became the island it is today.

When you visit us, you won’t be short of things to do. Islay is on the whisky coast of Scotland and has 9 working distilleries. Why not take a tour? Or you could experience the wonderful Scottish wildlife the island has to offer. With over 200 species of birds visiting and living on the island, it is a Twitcher’s paradise!
