Islay Birding
Queen of the Isles, Islay is one of the largest isles of the Inner Hebrides. Only 40kms by 30kms at its extremes Islay boasts fantastic scenery, wonderful habitats and, of course, amazing birding. Being in the Gulf Stream the climate is mild and pleasant.
From the Rhinns in the south west to the Oa in the south east, expansive beaches and 500m hills in the north, Islay manages to squeeze in a lot!
