Below is a list of Relevant Websites for the Isle of Islay off the west coast of Scotland, RS-Islay. Islay is situated about 30 miles off the west coast of Scotland at the Mull of Kintyre. Large Car Ferries run about 4 times a day each way between Kennacraig on the Mull of Kintyre, and Port Ellen or Port Askaig on the Isle of Islay. There is also a Small Ferry that runs from Port Askaig to the Isle of Jura, only a five minute crossing between the Islands.

The two ways to drive to Kennacraig are up past Loch Lomond, then down through Inverary, or cross to the Isle of Arran from Ardrossan, then take the Small Ferry from the north of Arran to the Mull of Kintyre. Attractions on Islay include many Whisky Distilleries, stunning Beaches, and scenic Walking/Hiking routes.
