Description

Islay, Jura and Colonsay

Islay, Jura and Colonsay make up the most southerly Hebridean island group. The most southerly island group of the Hebrides, Islay, Jura and Colonsay have much to tempt the walker and traveller. Regular ferry services make this splendidly isolated group easy to reach, and the journey is rewarded by outstanding birdlife and wildlife, sandy beaches often bathed in sunshine, rugged hills, dramatic coastlines, fascinating historic treasures and – on Jura, but even more so on Islay – renowned whisky distilleries. You could easily spend a week on each of these islands and still leave many places unexplored, or a longer stay on Islay would allow enjoyable daytrips by boat to both Jura and Colonsay.
Featuring 40 walks, this volume aims to help you get the most from your visit to these islands. Most of the walks are a half day or shorter, with many suitable for families, but the guide also includes a few more challenging hillwalks for those who can’t resist the allure of reaching an island summit.
